ABUJA, July 4 (Reuters) – An attack on a drilling rig in the Niger Delta in southern Nigeria on Wednesday has not affected oil production because the rig is an exploration facility, a spokesman for Shell (RDSa.L: Quote, Profile , Research) in Nigeria said.

Precious Okolobo said the rig, located at Soku in the coastal area of Rivers state, was operated by a contractor company, Lonestar. Gunmen attacked the facility overnight and kidnapped five expatriates working there.
