NNPC Awaits Order To Full Take Over OML From Shell

Days after the presidency revoked shell petroleum development corporation’s operating license and ordered the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation to take over the operatorship of the entire OML eleven, NNPC says it has yet to receive the order.

NNPC has told some journalists on Thursday it was still waiting for a letter or memo to that effect.

NNPC spokesperson, Ndu Ughamadu is quoted as saying the corporation knows nothing about the notice which had already been made public.

The federal government’s action on Thursday to revoke shell’s operating license was said to have been taken out of respect for inhabitants of Ogoniland where OML eleven is located. That is also where there had been series of shell oil spills that have polluted the area and exposed residents to series of dangers.
