I mean, they supposedly make money when the oil's flowing from oil bunkering. Even though I have no evidence whatsoever, I wonder about the possibility of militant leaders (or politicians?) betting big money on the price of oil, knowing that major attacks on oil installations would inevitably increase the price oil. With margin trading, and the money made from oil bunkering, they could be making millions, even tens of millions of dollars on each attack.<BR/><BR/>If I could figure out who they were, and play the oil market the way they do, I bet I would win every time (Hey, I said I was cynical!). On the other side, if the government knew who they were as well, they could increase security on oil installations when those investors made a major move. However, the number of kilometres of pipeline to protect probably makes that option impractical. The militants could also use different investment companies every time. :(<BR/><BR/>This isn't stopping in a while, regardless of the efforts of the government to better the lives of the people of the Niger Delta. There's too much money to be made.Jojo[email protected]tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8686769.post-63010612229427431662008-07-03T10:50:00.000+01:002008-07-03T10:50:00.000+01:00Erm, so sorry, i'm a bit slow this morning, what e...Erm, so sorry, i'm a bit slow this morning, what exactly is the point of this story?
