Video - Niger Delta Avengers claim to have blown up Chevron pipeline
The Niger Delta Avengers have claimed to have blown up a Chevron well and oil pipelines near the city of Warri. The group has pushed production to 30-year lows in the past few weeks, through a spate of attacks. The Avengers say they've blown up a Nigerian Petroleum Development Company manifold, close to Banta, and two crude pipelines operated by the state oil company. A manifold platform is where small oil or gas pipelines converge before connecting to a larger storage hub. The group also claims to have targeted "Chevron Well 10", close to the Otunana flow station. Chevron and N-N-P-C have not been available to comment.
