"This round of attacks will be the most deadly and will be targeting the deep sea operations of the multinationals," it said in a statement on its website.
The group, which wants a greater share of Nigeria's energy wealth to go to the impoverished Delta region, said its targets would include Bonga Platform, Agbami, EA Field, Brittania-U Field, Akpo Field. In November, the group said it had ended a ceasefire.
In 2016 the Niger Delta Avengers bombed the Forcados sub-sea pipeline, a strike which involved the use of divers.
Since January 2017 no substantial attacks have been carried out by any groups in the Delta, Nigeria's southern oil production heartland. ■
