Nigeria investigates oil spill at Shell’s Trans Niger pipeline


Authorities in Nigeria and Shell’s local subsidiary are investigating the cause of a spill on the Trans Niger pipeline. The spill was detected earlier this month on June 11 – a few days later Shell confirmed it in a statement. Environmental activists say nothing was done to contain the oil spill for over a week.
