Nigeria's Forcados oil terminal hit by brief pipeline shutdown

LONDON, April 6 (Reuters) -

* Nigeria’s Forcados terminal is ramping up after a temporary shutdown on the Trans Forcados Pipeline

* “There was low injection into the Forcados terminal on March 27 as a result of a temporary shutdown of the Trans Forcados Pipeline, operated by Heritage,” an SPDC spokesman said in a statement. “The pipeline was restored on April 2 and production into the terminal is ramping up”

* Traders said Forcados crude oil loadings were delayed by 2-3 days

* SPDC did not comment on the cause of the pipeline shutdown or the loading delays

* Forcados exports were scheduled at 262,000 barrels per day on 10 cargoes in April. Nigeria’s total April crude exports were set at 1.854 million bpd (Reporting by Libby George; editing by Jason Neely)
