Aiteo, addressing the issue promptly, stated, “Our dedicated team has worked diligently to address the issues caused by the recent incident and implemented enhanced safety protocols to prevent future occurrences.” The company expressed its satisfaction, saying, “We are delighted to confirm the resumption of production activities.”

The Nembe Creek facility, the largest of 11 fields under Aiteo’s oil mining lease, also produces significant amounts of natural gas that supply the Nigerian liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant at Bonny Island. This region has been heavily polluted due to decades of spills, impacting local farming and fishing communities.

Aiteo’s swift response and resumption of production underscore its commitment to maintaining operational integrity and environmental safety in its activities.
