Nigeria's Forcados crude loadings delayed by leak -sources


(Reuters) -

* Loadings of Nigeria’s Forcados crude oil have been delayed by at least 10 days after a leak on the main pipeline, industry and local sources said.

* Flows through the key Trans Forcados pipeline were temporarily reduced while the leak was being repaired last week, one of the sources familiar with the matter said.

* Royal Dutch Shell, which operates the export terminal, did not respond immediately to a request for comment.

* The pipeline usually carries between 200,000 and 240,000 barrels of oil per day.
