Again, Niger Delta Avengers hit Chevron oil wells

There may not be an end in sight yet in the ongoing action by Niger Delta Avengers despite heavy presence of the military in the oil rich, Niger Delta, as the militant group, early Wednesday morning, blew up two oil wells belonging to Chevron.

The affected oil wells are located close to Egbema in Warri North Local Government Area of Delta State.

According to reports, the incident occurred around 3:44am, affecting Chevron Bibi Oil Well RMP 23 and RMP 24.

The oil giant was said to have noticed the incident at about 4am following a drop in pressure during production. The wells have since been shut down.

A staff of Chevron, who confirmed the development under condition of anonymity, said the attack led to heavy spillage in the creeks, adding that a team of engineers had been sent to assess the damage and to stop further spread of the spillage.

NDA has also confirmed attacking the oil wells in a tweet on its Twitter [email protected]

In the tweet, the NDA said: “With the heavy presence of 100 Gunboats, 4 Warships and Jet Bombers, NDA blew up Chevron Oil Well RMP 23 and RMP 24 3:44am this Morning.

“RMP 24 and RMP 23 are Chevron Swamp Highest producing Wells. #Boom”
