LAGOS, Sept 17 (Reuters) - Nigeria’s Nembe Creek Trunk Line (NCTL), which exports Bonny Light crude oil, was shut down and placed under force majeure last week, a spokesman for operator Aiteo said on Tuesday.
The spokesman did not give a reason for the shutdown.
The pipeline is one of two that exports Bonny Light, so the terminal is currently loading only from the Trans Niger Pipeline, a spokesman for terminal operator Shell said. (Reporting by Libby George, editing by Louise Heavens)
