ABUJA, June 30 (Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell (RDSa.L: Quote, Profile, Research) said on Monday there were no attacks on its oil flow stations in Nigeria over the weekend following local media reports of clashes with militants near its facilities at Bonny.
Several Nigerian newspapers reported an attack by suspected militants on a houseboat owned by Shell in the Oloma area of the oil-rich Niger Delta region over the weekend. One report said a flow station had also been hit.
“No Shell flow station, including Oloma, was attacked over the weekend,” said Precious Okolobo, a spokesman for Shell in Nigeria.
