Feb 18 (Reuters) – Nigerian militants launched a string of attacks on the world's eighth largest oil exporter on Saturday, abducting nine foreign workers, bombing a major oil export platform and sabotaging two pipelines. Royal Dutch Shell suspended exports from the 380,000 barrel-a-day Forcados tanker terminal, a senior industry source said. Nigeria supplies about 2.4 million barrels daily.
The following foreign companies operate in Nigeria:
* Royal Dutch Shell is the largest, producing over 40 percent of Nigeria's oil. It employs 5,000 people.
* Exxon Mobil is Nigeria's second largest oil producer, with about 720,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boepd) of crude, condensate and natural gas liquids. It has 1,900 employees
* France's Total produced around 270,000 boepd in 2004 in Nigeria and has about 1,200 employees.
* Italy's ENI produced around 161,000 boepd in 2004.
* U.S. major Chevron averaged production of 117,000 bpd of oil in 2004. It employs over 2,000 people.
