Event: Pirate Attack
Bonny Island, Nigeria
OPS Global Risk Management has received information that a tanker was attacked whilst underway approximately 8nm South of Bonny Fairway Buoy. Due to security vessels arriving on scene the pirates aborted their attack.
Vessels within a 100 nautical mile radius should increase their anti-piracy deterrents in line with Best Management Practices 4. This should include increased twenty four hour anti-piracy watch keeping and radar monitoring. Vessel hardening should be checked and where appropriate bolstered.
