LAGOS, April 21 (Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell (RDSa.L: Quote, Profile, Research) said two of its oil pipelines were attacked in Nigeria’s Niger Delta on Monday and the company was assessing the damage.

“We can confirm attacks early today on two pipelines in our Eastern operations,” spokesman Precious Okolobo told Reuters, adding the company was checking on the damage to the Soku-Buguma and Buguma-Alakri pipelines in Rivers state.

Earlier, the rebel Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) said its commandos had attacked two oil pipelines in the state.
