Kidnapped

Neville,

Six British workers plus 1 American and 1 Canadian kidnapped from the Bulford Dolphin drilling rig owned by Fred Olsen Energy ASA. No names are being released yet and Dolphin Drilling are working with Nigerian authorities to secure the mens release. No ransom demand has been recieved yet and the location of the men remains unclear as is the identity of the kidnappers. All operations have been suspended by Fred Olsen and Dolphin drilling and all non essentila personnel have been evacuated back to the mainland. The rig had 84 workers aboard when attacked. If I get any more from Fred Olsen you will be the firat to know. Just heard the Foreign and Commonwealth Office have become involved and are trying to find out further information from its contacts in Nigeria.
