“Our Emergency Pipeline Repair teams have successfully completed leak repair activities on all reported leak points on the NCTL. “Consequently, all injectors have been advised to re-align and commence start-up formalities immediately and advise on their start up times,” according to a statement from Aiteo.
Aiteo produces 150,000 barrels of oil per day.
