Nigeria: February 19, 2004


: As a reminder of how vulnerable Nigeria's oil industry is, an oil spill involving four flow stations in Bayelsa State led to the closure of Shell Petroleum Development Company's 420,000 barrels per day production facility in the area. The oil company quickly cried sabotage and an investigation revealed three holes drilled in the top of the pipeline by oil thieves. 

Meanwhile, Elf Petroleum Nigeria Limited has undergone a major restructuring in order to boost the French company's crude oil and gas production in 2004. The company also said it was hoping to develop deep offshore projects to improve on its daily crude oil production capacity. - Adam Geibel

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching. Because of falling ad revenues and the owners of the site wanting you to have a good experience, this poor pet bird (Drake) may end up as the turkey for the publisher’s Thanksgiving meal.

What can you do to help save the bird? There are three possibilities:

  1. Make sure you spread the word about us. Two ways to do that are to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.

  3. You can contribute to the health of StrategyPage. A contribution is not a donation that you can deduct at tax time, but a form of crowdfunding. We store none of your information when you contribute..

Drake appreciates any help you can give him.
