French crewmen kidnapped in Nigeria attack -Bourbon

PARIS, Sept 22 (Reuters) - French offshore vessel supplier Bourbon (GPBN.PA) said three French crewmen were kidnapped during an attack on a ship at Addax’s AXC.TO offshore oil field off the Nigerian coast.

The attack by several speed boats took place during the night of Sept. 21 to Sept. 22 on the Bourbon Alexandre vessel and its 16 crew members, the statement said on Wednesday.

The 13 other crew members have remained on board and nobody was injured, the company said.

Bourbon, which is working in close collaboration with French and Nigerian authorities, said that no claim had been made at this stage. (Reporting by Dominique Vidalon; Editing by James Regan)
