A Shell Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel working off Bayelsa shore, has been closed down due water spillage, an authority has said
SPDC Spokesman, Mr Michael Adande who revealed this in an explanation on Thursday, said the vessel has been securely moored for fixes.
He expressed that the seaward group on board the vessel dedicated Sea Eagle, revealed the water inflow into the structure of the office on July 24.

“The water inflow didn’t influence the part of the FPSO where any rough is put away.

“A crisis reaction group has been effectively actuated to answer the episode and to contain the water inflow,”

he said.

Adande said that the FPSO could stockpile to 1.4 million barrels of handled rough, and had a creation limit of 170,000 barrels each day.
