Fire: Aiteo declears force majure on Nembe creek trunk line

Fire

Lagos, April 21 2019 The management of Aiteo Eastern Exploration and Production Company on Sunday said that it had placed a force majure on the Nembe Creek Trunk Line (NCTL) due to fire outbreak.

Mr Ndiana Matthew, Head, Corporate Communications of the company said this in a statement in Lagos.

He explained that the action followed information of a fire outbreak by a surveillance team composed of the Joint Task Force (JTF) and DSS around NCTL RoW near Awoba this Sunday.

According to Mathew, “We are constrained to shut in injection as well as other related operations into the NCTL.

” In accordance with standard procedure, we requested the other injectors to do same.

“The NCTL has, hitherto, enjoyed smooth operations preceding this incident”.

According to him, the fire may have occurred through an illegitimate, third party breach of the functionality of the pipeline which is as a critical national asset.

Mathew said: “In the meantime, the relevant investigations are continuing while further information about the remote and direct causes of the fire will be communicated as soon as these became available.

“We ask our stakeholders to await further, detailed briefing in due course”.
