Oil Tanker on Fire at Nigerian Port

Friday, January 11, 2008
Reuters reported that an oil tanker burst into flames at Nigeria's Port Harcourt on Friday after two loud explosions were heard, oil industry sources said. The tanker was berthed in a general cargo area, not at an oil exporting terminal, and crude exports from the world's eighth largest oil exporter were not affected, the sources said.
