A Nigerian oil workers union has confirmed an attack on a pipeline operated by state oil firm, NNPC, in the Niger Delta oil hub claimed by a militant group, an executive said on Monday.

The Greenland Justice Mandate group said in a statement it had attacked on Saturday the Efurun-Otor line operated by NPDC, a unit of NNPC.

“There was an attack,” said Lucky Sorue, chairman for oil and gas workers in the Urhobo region. “Although the pipeline was not in use at the time of attack, NPDC periodically makes use of it and it is a major carrier of their product from (oil mining lease) OML 34 to OML 65.”
