A Nigerian woman walks past the flames from a Shell oil flowstation near Otu-Jerenvwi in the volatile Niger-Delta region January 17, 2006. World oil prices hit a three and half-month high on Tuesday after militants said they would broaden attacks on the country's oil industry. The country's biggest foreign operator, Royal Dutch Shell, has already evacuated staff from some facilities and scaled back output as violence escalated over the past week, but said that it has no plans to pull out of the delta.

Oil from a leaking pipeline burns in Goi-Bodo, a swamp area of the Niger Delta in Nigeria October 12, 2004. Oil company Royal Dutch Shell said the leak was caused by unknown saboteurs on Monday who used a hacksaw to cut open a major pipeline feeding oil to an export terminal at Bonny, southern Nigeria. The fire was still raging on Wednesday, but the company said the impact on oil output was minimal. Picture taken October 12, 2004. REUTERS/Austin Ekeinde Pictures of the Month October 2004 TA/RSS/WS

Rebels of the Niger Delta People's Volunteer Force train in the creeks of the Niger Delta in Nigeria September 28, 2004. The Royal Dutch/Shell Group's Nigerian venture closed a pumping station in the Niger Delta after having evacuated staff last week due to a threat of war by Nigeria rebel leader Mujahid Dokubo-Asari. Asari's Niger Delta People's Volunteer Force on Monday threatened to launch an "all-out war on the Nigerian state" and issued a communique advising all foreign oil workers to leave the delta. He also told oil companies to shut their operations. Companies have largely ignored the instruction to leave, but they stepped up security in the vast area of mangrove swamps and creeks.
