Accusations fly as oil slick hits Nigeria coast

By Akintunde Akinleye: OROBIRI, Nigeria | Sun Jan 1, 2012 2:05pm EST

(Reuters) – Nigerian villagers say oil washing up on the coast comes from a Royal Dutch Shell loading accident last month that caused the biggest spill in Africa’s top producer in more than 13 years.

Shell denies that any of the oil is from its 200,000 barrel per day (bpd) Bonga facility, 120 km offshore and accounting for 10 percent of monthly oil flows, which was shut down by the spill on December 20.

Shell says five ships were used to disperse and contain the spill and that this kept any oil from washing ashore. read more
