Response by Shell to articles & statement re cleanup of Bodo spill, Nigeria

Author: Andrew Vickers, Shell

SPDC will publish the joint investigation report...once it is complete. The affected pipeline section is being removed for off-site testing. This approach was...supported by the community members that are part of the Joint Investigation Team. Community representatives will have ongoing access to the section of pipe. The issue of illegal bunkering has been widely reported by the international media... Unfortunately, there are also instances where spills are caused by operational failures, such as equipment failure and human error. SPDC pays compensation to those affected by operational spills, and cleans up all spills...as soon as possible.
