LAGOS, March 15 (Reuters) - Italian energy group Eni said on Tuesday it would lift a force majeure on exports of Nigerian Brass River crude oil this week after it completed repairs to a pipeline damaged by a blast.
The group had cut oil and gas exports from its Brass Export terminal.
"The force majeure is expected to be lifted by this week," Eni said in a statement.
Disruptions to oil production are common in the oil-rich Niger Delta region, where pipelines are often vandalised and crude stolen for illegal refining.
