The company said the action was due to production deferment following a reported leak along the Eastern Gas Gathering System (EGGS-1) near Awoba in Rivers State.
“In line with safety precautions, we have shut down our Soku and Gbaran Ubie gas export via the EGGS1 pipeline,” SPDC said in a statement.
According to the company, this has resulted in the shutting in of 1.5 Bcf/d. For a limited time and subject to capacity limitations, adding, “we are able to export between 100 million and 200 million scfpd from Soku via the GTS1.”
