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.
