Oil Companies Spilled 30m barrels of oil in Niger Delta

Oil-producing companies operating in the Niger Delta have spilled about 30 million barrels of crude oil into the environment since oil production started in Nigeria, according to statistics provided by Aveon Offshore.
The statistics also showed that poor production equipment accounts for one per cent of the spill in the Niger Delta, while corrosion of pipelines and tankers, illegal bunkering, as well as sabotage accounted largely for the rest of the spill.
