The oil and gas industry
is on high alert after a Federal Bureau of Investigation warning that Osama
bin Laden may have commanded retaliatory strikes against natural gas supplies
in North America in event of his capture or death.
News sources said on
Monday that the FBI sent a memo to the American Petroleum Institute alerting
the API to issue a warning to oil and gas companies. The memo warned that
"such an attack would allegedly take place in the event that either bin
Laden or Taliban leader Mullah Omar are either captured or killed."
