As predicted, there was an attack on oil fields in Nigeria. This involved an attack on two pipelines in the Delta Region. Shell has stoped ppumping through one of the pipelines.
The pipeline attacked by militants carries 130,000 barrels per day, according to Reuters news agency.
The Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (Mend) claimed responsibility for the attacks.
They attacked a major trunk pipeline in Nembe Creek, Shell confirmed.
The location of the second attack is yet to be confirmed.
The oil companies have reneged, apparently, on paying MEND the protection money they demand to curtail attacks. That they do.
