Oil spill contained in Delta
Eni said on Saturday an oil spill near its facilities in the Niger Delta had been contained, but local people said the pollution had spread and damaged their fishing.
Eni said the spill occurred last week about 10 km (six miles) from the Obama flowstation in Bayelsa state. “We do not yet have information either on the causes or the amount of oil affected,” an Eni spokesman said.
Local community leaders said the spill came from an Eni pipeline and had spread into creeks and waterways.
