Royal Dutch Shell said on Monday that is had re-opened a key oil pipeline in Nigeria that had been shut since late November 2015.

The Trans Niger Pipeline (TNP), which carries Bonny Light crude oil to the export terminal had re-opened "in recent days," a Shell spokeswoman confirmed.

The pipeline remained closed while the company investigated an incident on 22 November in which four contractors died during an operation to remove crude oil theft points.
