Chevron Debunks Oil Spill in its facilities

One of Nigeria’s leading multinational oil companies, Chevron Nigeria Limited (CNL), has debunked a report going the rounds about oil spill in Bayelsa.

In a statement the company stated: “Chevron Nigeria Limited (CNL), operator of the joint venture between the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and CNL (the NNPC/CNL JV), is aware of media reports suggesting an oil leakage from our Funiwa field in Bayelsa State.

“We wish to state that contrary to these reports, there has been no such oil leakage or spill incident at any of our facilities in Bayelsa State. Therefore, any observed crude oil in the environment is not from our operations.”

 It added: “CNL remains committed to protecting people and the environment as well as conducting its operations reliably and efficiently.”
