#1 From what I can glean from open-source, the Seadiver was an 'arsenal ship'; a floating armory for the oil fields that it worked in. Its last op-area was over in the Indian Ocean region. It was seized while in transit.
Apparently somebody either refused to pay off the West Africans, or was slow in paying them.

#2 there's a LOT going on behind the scenes that's not reported in this story. Don't take it at face value. Suffice it to say ... there's nothing fair in war, love, or the Oil Business. Hahahahaha!!!
