Shell hopes to reopen the flowstation by this weekend. The company has not released exact figures on just how much production is being shut-in. James Ibori, the governor of Delta State, was leading the negotiations to resolve the conflict between Shell and the local communities. Reopening the flowstation depends on the recommendations of governor Ibori: " If he gives a guarantee that our staff should go back, we will go back," Effeduma added.
Meanwhile, Shell has restarted production at two other Forcados flowstations, which had been closed since March because of ethnic unrest.
