Abuja – Gunmen attacked a vessel supporting a Transocean oil drilling rig in Nigeria’s Niger Delta, abducting three Nigerian staff and seizing weapons and equipment, security sources said on Friday.

Six people injured during the attack late on Thursday were airlifted out and the Trident 8 rig has been shut down, the sources said. No oil flow was affected.

“A security vessel, Mike One, supporting Trident 8, a Transocean rig drilling for Conoil in Brass, was attacked by armed men yesterday,” said a security expert working for a major Western oil company operating in the Niger Delta. Conoil is a Nigerian company.
