Eni Set to Restore Operations at Nigerian Pipelines

Eni has informed that on June 16, 2008, a sudden drop of pressure occurred at the Nigerian pipelines linking Tebidaba flowstation to Brass terminal and Ogbambiri flowstation to Tebidaba flowstation.

Production was therefore suspended on June 17, 2008 (47,000 barrels of oil per day, of which 8,000 are Eni's equity). The units in charge of restoring operations have been immediately activated. At the present, Eni reported that the causes of the incident are unknown.
