Event: Pirate Attack

 

Nigeria

A report has been received that a vessel was attacked 33nm from the Agbara field. The Master and Chief Engineer are reported to have been kidnapped. Their location is at present unknown.

 

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.
