A militant group, which has identified itself as Niger Delta Avengers (NDA), had attacked Chevron’s facilities in the Escravos area of Delta State last Wednesday and Thursday.

The twin attacks affected the Escravos-Warri pipeline, which feeds the Warri and Kaduna refineries, cutting off crude feedstock to the two facilities.

While Chevron has reportedly evacuated staff from the affected facilities, Shell said it would continue to monitor the security situation in the region.

A Shell Nigeria spokesman, Mr. Precious Okolobo told THISDAY that the company was taking all possible steps to safeguard its staff and contractors.

“We continue to monitor the security situation in our operating areas and are taking all possible steps to ensure the safety of staff and contractors. We do not wish to go into details. Our operations are continuing,” Okolobo explained.
