Nigeria has oil pipeline attack; North Korea makes crude test


Rebels in Nigeria have destroyed a major Chevron pipeline, according to major British reports. The group is the The Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND). The BBC link for the story is here.

The action came at a time of lower oil prices because of recession driven demand and is not likely to have a major effect on prices.

Back on August 15, 2008 I got a personal email that may have come from this or a related group and shared it (a photo of the email) on this blog.

In other major international news, the Voice of America reports South Korea’s comments about North Korea’s crude nuclear test, which may have caused a small earthquake, story here by Kurt Achin. The link is here.
