Eni pipeline attacked in Bayelsa

4,000 bpd affected

A pipeline belonging to the Italian oil firm Eni was attacked overnight in Nigeria’s oil-producing Niger Delta, shutting in 4,000 barrels a day of crude production, the company said over the weekend. Eni said an “act of sabotage occurred in a minor pipeline of the Osiama field in Bayelsa state, Nigeria.” However it did not issue a warning that it may not be able to meet its contractual obligations because the affected levels of production are small.
