Violence And Poverty Plagues Oil Rich The Niger Delta

NEAR PORT HARCOURT, NIGER DELTA, NIGERIA - OCTOBER 9: A security guard watches as associated gas produced from oil wells is burned or 'flared' October 9, 2004 near Port Harcourt, Nigeria. The practice of flaring is both widely condemned and widely practiced in this region. A member of OPEC, Nigeria is the world's seventh largest crude oil exporter, and the fifth largest supplier to the U.S. The Niger Delta, where the bulk of Nigeria's oil comes from, is plagued by violence between rival warlords, ethnic groups, and the government frequently leading to the kidnapping of oil workers and interfering with oil production. Royal Dutch/Shell leads Exxon Mobil, Chevron Texaco, Total Fin Elf and Agip in production through a series of joint ventures with the government. Despite producing 2.26 million barrels of oil a day, 60 percent of Nigerians live below the poverty line. (Photo by Jacob Silberberg/Getty Images)
