Shell Petroleum Development Company of Nigeria, said, Wednesday [10 April], it had begun the decommissioning of its facilities in Ogoniland, Rivers State, with the commencement of an audit of its assets in the area.

Shell said in a statement the process began with bush clearing in the fourth quarter of last year, following series of engagements and consultations with the communities.

It is not clear why Shell kept quiet about the decommissioning until now, but this will be the first time Shell will be venturing into Ogoniland for any kind of activity in almost 20 years. read more and its sister websites,,,,, and are all owned by John Donovan. There is also a Wikipedia article.
