Shell continues cutback in Nigerian port

  |   June 1, 2007 at 3:13 PM
LAGOS, Nigeria, June 1 (UPI) -- The Bomu pipeline protest in Nigeria was in its fourth day Friday with Shell Oil Co. continuing to cut back on production.

Shell had reduced output by 150,000 barrels a day since villagers from K-Dere occupied the pipeline hub Tuesday, demanding a contract to supply goods and services, a spokesman said in Lagos.

The hub serves the Bonny shipping terminal.

The protesters are said to be demanding as much as $1.6 million in cash.
