Big Oil doing what Big Oil does. The track record in Nigeria is already bad, but this one stands out.
Oil from an offshore spill has spread roughly 100 nautical miles after a leak occurred while loading a tanker, a Nigerian official said Thursday. Royal Dutch Shell shut down a deep-water oil field off Nigeria's oil-rich southern delta on Tuesday. Peter Idabor, the head of the country's oil spill management agency, said the offshore oil spill is likely the worst in a decade.
