This Day
26 December 2011

As local and international pressure mounts on Shell Nigeria Exploration and Production Company (SNEPCo), operator of Bonga deepwater field, to clean-up the oil spill from the offshore facility, the company has claimed that it had removed 30,000barrels of crude oil from the water surface.

Shell said current estimates based on over flights indicate that the volume of crude oil on the surface of water has declined to about 10,000 barrels.

The company also stated that it had continued to apply dispersants and had also begun skimming operations to further reduce remnants of the oil leak.
