In continuation of efforts to reduce to the barest minimum the activities of crude oil thieves and oil pipeline vandals, the Air Component of Operation Delta Safe, on 1 March 2024, ress illegal oil refining sites at Krakama and Temakiri in Degema Local Government Area of Rivers State. Both locations are barely 50 km Southwest of Port Harcourt, the capital of Rivers State.

At both Krakrama and Temakiri, active illegal oil refining sites were observed with Cotonou Boats sighted nearby with the probable intent to illegally siphon crude oil from the sites. 

The 2 Illegal sites, as well as the boats, were subsequently struck, engulfed in flames and destroyed. 

Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Vice Marshal Edward Gabkwet noted in a press statement on Sunday that the armed reconnaissance was also extended to Abisse and Omoma, but only abandoned illegal refining sites were observed.
