Impact on an export terminal from a fire at Eni's Tebidaba Brass pipeline in Nigeria is not significant and work is under way to put out the fire, an Eni source said on Friday.

Earlier on Friday, a government official of Bayelsa state in the Niger Delta said oil thieves caused a fire this week on a Nigerian pipeline owned by Eni's unit Agip, which feeds crude oil to a flowstation there.

Impact on the production (of the terminal) is not significant, the Eni source said.
