Eni confirms Nigeria pipeline attack
MILAN (Reuters) - Italy's oil and gas group Eni confirmed on Sunday one of its oil pipelines in Nigeria had been attacked.
A Nigerian militant group based in the oil-producing Niger Delta said on Sunday it had attacked an oil pipeline owned by Eni where witnesses said there was a fire late on Saturday.
"Eni confirms the incident with around 4,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day of Eni equity oil production lost," a spokesman for the company said.
The spokesman added no more information was available at the moment.
