NewsWire.co.nz: Shell Shuts Down After Fresh Niger Delta Attacks

21 Feb 2006

Shell oil has shut down its operations in the Niger Delta following another attack on an installation in the region.

The group holding nine foreign oil workers claimed a fresh attack on another facility and an explosion which destroyed a military house boat.
Three Americans and a Briton and Filipino were among those abducted at the weekend while laying a Shell pipeline.
Shell has cut production by 450,000 barrels a day, one-fifth of Nigeria's oil output.
The latest attacks have not been confirmed by the Nigerian authorities.
The Nigerian government has accused militants in the region of smuggling oil and called the abduction of workers a criminal act.
