A relief to Chevron and Royal Dutch Shell

Among the major oil producers in Canada, Chevron (CVX) and Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A) got some relief on Tuesday as the Nigerian militant group, the Niger Delta Avengers, agreed to peace talks with the African country’s government.

The multiple attacks by these militants on the oil infrastructure belonging to Chevron, Royal Dutch Shell, and other major companies resulted in a drop of their oil output and the nation’s daily oil production. These attacks forced Nigeria’s oil production to drop to the levels not seen in the past 27 years, which resulted in a drop of 800,000 bpd of production.

At 3:38 PM EDT, Chevron (CVX) fell by ~1.0% to $101.05, and Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A) fell by ~2.5% to $49.29. ConocoPhillips (COP) rose by 0.77% at 3:42 PM EDT on Tuesday and traded at $44.24. ConocoPhillips recently turned down a $2 billion takeover of its assets in the North Sea. At the same time, ExxonMobil (XOM), one of the major oil companies in the US, fell by 0.29% to $90.32.
