Oil Spills in Nigeria?

The Nigerian branch of oil giant Shell has been found responsible for damage caused by leaks in the Niger Delta as ruled by a Dutch appeals court. While Shell publicly report spills in the area can we use remote sensing to spot oil from space?

In this video tutorial we look at using SAR data, Google Earth Engine and QGIS to identify what might be oil spills off the coast of Nigeria. Thanks to Line of Actual Control for the original substack post.
