SHELL Petroleum Development Company has said its signing of multimillion dollar pipeline surveillance contract with some Ogoni communities in Rivers State, is not a plot to resume oil production there. The company which was forced to shut its operational activities in Ogoni in 1993 following an uprising by local communities protesting against environmental degradation, said the implementation of the United Nations Environment Programme on Ogoni is being handled by the Federal Government of Nigeria.
