NOSDRA Says 3,000 Barrels Lost to Nov Spill 



Oil Price Appreciates as World Awaits Israel’s Response to Iran Attack

About 3,000 barrels of crude oil were lost to the November 15 oil spill from offshore Egina Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel of TotalEnergies.

Director-General of the National Oil Spills Detection and Response Agency (NOSDRA), Idris Musa, told News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), yesterday, that the cleanup of the spill was still ongoing.

He added that NOSDRA and TotalEnergies did not spare any effort at tackling the pollution to minimise its impact on the environment, a development that kept the spilled crude from reaching the coastline.

“The spill has not hit the coastline because of the effectiveness of the spills contingency plan we deployed.

“The spill was not a minor one; it was the response strategy put in place that resulted in limited impact and we have been tracing and tracking the oil slick and supervising response efforts.
