A nine-year-old boy kidnapped by a gang in Nigeria’s oil-producing Niger Delta has been released.

His 11-year-old sister was shot dead trying to protect him as they walked to school in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, last week.

It is understood no ransom was paid to the kidnappers even though his father is an employee of Royal Dutch Shell.

Kidnapping of oil company employees by gangs of armed men is on the increase in the Niger Delta.

Emmanuel Awonusi is reported to have been released unharmed. read more

From Mr Roland Rudd and others.

Sir, At this time of economic difficulty and real hardship for many people, it is more important than ever to cherish the principle of the free movement of labour in the European Union. This has been called into question by the strikes at the Lindsey oil refinery and elsewhere. The fundamental principle of the European single market is the free movement of goods, capital, services and labour. This means that continental European companies can invest in the UK; such investment generates economic growth and productivity. Similarly it enables UK companies to trade easily and invest in the rest of Europe. It is estimated that the single market is worth £20bn annually to the UK. read more

Why BG remains the stand-out play among London blue chips

However, the last three months of 2008 proved a record quarter for LNG – operating profits rose nearly threefold year-on-year to £456 million – helping BG’s earnings to beat consensus estimates by 15 per cent. That helps to explain why the company’s fourth-quarter earnings were down just 26 per cent on their predecessor, against the 71 per cent and 49 per cent falls recorded by BP and Shell respectively.
