Nigerian Petroleum Development Co Says Lost $4.9B To Attacks This Year

Reuters

ABUJA, Dec 14 (Reuters) - The Nigerian Petroleum Development Company (NPDC), a subsidiary of state oil firm NNPC, said on Wednesday it had lost 1.5 trillion naira ($4.9 billion) due to attacks on its facilities since the beginning of the year.

The subsidiary of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation specialises in exploration and production of oil.

Militants' attacks in the oil-rich Niger Delta have severely hobbled production this year, at one stage reducing output by more than a third.
