From Nigeria’s Illegal Oil Refineries, one of 30 photos. Smoke rises as an illegal oil refinery burns after a military chase in a winding creek near river Nun in Nigeria’s oil state of Bayelsa, on December 6, 2012. Thousands of people in Nigeria engage in a practice known locally as “oil bunkering” - hacking into pipelines to steal crude then refining it or selling it abroad. The practice, which leaves oil spewing from pipelines for miles around, managed to lift around a fifth of Nigeria’s two million barrel a day production last year according to the finance ministry.
