Rivers Reopens Shell’s Kidney Island Asset After Meeting With NNPC GMD
Rivers state government has reopened Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC) operational base, Kidney Island, after it was taken over on December 23, 2020.
This was disclosed in a statement signed by Kelvin Ebiri, special assistant to the governor of Rivers state on media. The state government had sealed Shell’s operational base after it claimed to have obtained a certificate of purchase registered in Port Harcourt’s lands registry.
It said the facility (Kidney Island) and Shell’s 30 percent stake in oil mining lease (OML) 11 were “lawfully purchased through public auction ordered by the High Court of Rivers state”.
