Shell said it shut down its offshore Nigerian EA crude oil field, which can produce 115,000 barrels per day (bpd), on Nov. 9 for several weeks for planned maintenance work.
"We shut down the FPSO (floating production, storage and offloading) so there will be no production," a Shell spokesman told Reuters by phone. "We shut down on Nov. 9 for several weeks. It is planned maintenance."
EA crude oil exports were averaging around 80,000-100,000 bpd prior to the maintenance, according to loading programmes.
