Fire at the Tebidaba-Brass Pipeline in Bayelsa State,Nigeria

The pipeline fire, comes barely two weeks after a large amount of crude oil was spilled near the company’s facility during the loading of crude oil into export tanker.

Eni, which operates in Nigeria as Nigerian Agip Oil Company (NAOC)’s spokesman reportedly was quoted as saying at the weekend that the fire occurred at the Tebidaba-Brass Pipeline in Bayelsa State. “At the moment we do not have information on the cause (of fire). We have promptly started the shut-in operations for the flow stations related to the pipeline,” said Eni spokesman.

He however, declined to disclose how much production was lost.
