The BBC has reported details of a piracy attack in the Gulf of Aden.
BIMCO recommends to all members that ships in this area are to register with MSCHOA and report to UKMTO, in accordance with BMP procedures. Ship protection measures should be in place and avoid complacency at this heightened state of alert.

Veritas Petroleum Services (VPS) publish regular Bunker Alerts based entirely on fuel samples and have kindly permitted BIMCO’s Members to access this information.
The Bunker Alerts are not intended to be an evaluation of overall bunker quality in the port or area concerned, but usually highlight a specific parameter within the fuel which has raised a quality issue.
