This Pretty Much Spells The End Of Nigeria As We Know It -- June 1, 2016

Rigzone is reporting:
Two of Chevron's most productive wells destroyed.

Chevron’s RMP 23 and RMP 24 wells in Nigeria have been blown up.

The attack was carried out in the presence of “100 gunboats, 4 warships and jet bombers,” said an NDA spokesperson in a Tweet. RMP 24 and RMP 23 were labeled by the [Niger Delta Avengers ] as some of Chevron’s highest producing wells.

The Niger Delta Avengers claimed responsibility for an assault on Chevron’s Escravos terminal in Nigeria May 26.
NDA used explosives to damage the Escravos tank farm main electricity feed pipeline, which resulted in Chevron’s onshore activities in the Niger Delta being shut down. The attack followed NDA’s warning to Chevron that no repair works should be carried out to facilities previously targeted by the group, until NDA’s demands are fully met. NDA claimed on its official website May 11 that it suspected Chevron was preparing to carry out repair works at the Okan Valve platform, which was blown up by the group at the start of the month.
This pretty much tells me, if the story is accurate, it's just a matter of time before Chevron makes an announcement of force majeure. If not, I will be very surprised. But not the first time that I'm wrong.

Another Safe Gun-Free Zone -- Safe For The Shooter

Shooting at UCLA; two down; shooter at large (for now).

I could be wrong, but I was quite sure that UCLA was a gun-free zone.
