Oil theft and illegal refining represent some of the causes of environmental pollution in Niger Delta, besides lack of maintenance and accidents with oil installations.

So-called “hanging rubble” is produced by shelling rebar concrete buildings, causing big problems with falling rubble even days after the impact, structural instability etc. making it difficult to demolish the damaged buildings without a long reach demolition excavator.
