Shell Says Oil Leakage in Ogbooniland does not warrant Compensation
26 January 2017 National
Shell Petroleum Development Company has said it would not pay compensation to communities affected by its oil leakage, claiming that the incident has no adverse impact to warrant compensation.
Shell’s Spokesman, Joseph Obari, today while reacting to calls for compensation to communities affected by the leakage said the Seibou 2 oil spill, which occurred on January 23, 2015, was adequately contained within Shell’s right of way and was cleaned up.
Mr. Obari added that National Oil Spill Detection and Response Agency had issued a certificate to acknowledge SPDC’s compliance with all clean-up standards.
