PORT HARCOURT, Nigeria, March 16 (Reuters) - Suspected Nigerian militants attacked an oil pipeline operated by U.S. energy giant Chevron (CVX.N) in the southern Niger Delta on Friday, a military spokesman said on Monday.

Colonel Rabe Abubakar said the pipeline running from the Abiteye flow station near Warri in Delta state was attacked in the early hours of Friday morning. He said the strike had resulted in leakage into four communities in the area.
