“It should also support the efforts of the Nigerian government to secure its territorial waters and so prevent the unhindered movement of vessels used to transport stolen crude,” it suggested in a statement in Lagos.
According to the organization, stolen Nigerian crude oil is transported on internationally registered vessels, sold to international buyers, processed by international oil refineries and paid for using international bank accounts.
It said the environmental impact of the trade, and associated illegal oil refineries that process it in the creeks of the Niger Delta is devastating, while a region already regarded as an environmental tragedy is being further degraded and efforts to rehabilitate the region cannot proceed until this illicit trade is contained.
