SPDC declares force majeure on Forcados blend
Helicopter overflights showed a slight sheen around the export line.
A joint investigation conducted by representatives of communities, SPDC, regulators and security agencies determined that the leak was caused by third party interference; unknown persons had installed a crude theft point on the line in water depth of about eight metres.
SPDC has mobilised equipment and materials to the site, and is working to repair and reopen the line as soon as possible.
