Lagos – Total Nigeria, which has blamed acts of sabotage for a recent oil spill in the country, has outlined measures to curb the impact of the setback.

Following the oil spill reported at the Kilometre 25 and 27 locations on its Obagi – Rumuekpe oil export pipeline, on August 16, a Joint Investigation Visit, in accordance with the extant regulations, was carried out on the oil spill locations, with relevant regulatory agencies.

The JIV team recorded that the oil spill incident was due to third-party interference (sabotage).

“TEPNG (Total Energy & Petroleum Nigeria) is committed to preventing further spread of the spill and to restore the environment. Total will continue to work with the relevant government authorities and communities to ensure that this is achieved,” Ogan said. – CAJ News
