Shell Starts Bonga Back Up

According to Reuters, Shell spokesman Precious Okolobo said that the company resumed production at the Bonga offshore oilfield, although he did not say if the field was producing at its full capacity or not.

The Bonga oilfield has been shut in since last week because of a militant attack.

Located in OPL 212 offshore Nigeria in more than 1,000 meters of water, the Bonga field was Nigeria's first-ever deepwater oil discovery. The field first commenced production in January 2006, climbing to 200,000 b/d by the end of that year.
