ChevronTexaco Contract Worker Killed in Nigeria

ChevronTexaco said that one of its contract workers has been killed due to ethnic violence in the Escravos area of Nigeria. The company said that crew rotation at its Escravos operations has been halted because the current situation did not permit safe transport of its personnel. "Two catering contract employees working at ChevronTexaco's Escraovos tank farm were hit by stray bullets on Monday March 17. Unfortunately one died early today at the Warri hospital," spokesman Sola Omole said in a statement.
