Nigerian villagers vacate two of four oil stations

PORT HARCOURT, Nigeria (Reuters) – Villagers in Nigeria’s southern Rivers state have vacated two of four oil pumping stations they were occupying in a dispute with oil companies, a local community leader said on Monday.

In a separate incident, a source at Italian oil firm Agip, owned by oil and gas group Eni said community youths in neighboring Bayelsa state had invaded an oil pumping station at Clough Creek on Saturday night and were occupying it in a dispute with the company.

An Eni spokesperson said there was practically no impact on the company’s production there.

Members of the Kula community in Rivers invaded four flow stations last Wednesday demanding contracts from the operators, Royal Dutch Shell and Chevron.
