Offshore Energy Force Majeure: Nigeria's Local Problem with Global Consequences

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

On Thursday 19 June 2008, Royal Dutch Shell's Bonga floating production storage and offloading vessel (FPSO) was attacked by armed militants. This forced the company to shut down the entire production at its main offshore oil field in Nigeria. The incident raised great concerns and even fears for the security of deep-sea offshore installations in the region, which had previously been considered out of the reach of militant groups.
