BIMCO is grateful to the Standard P&I Club for providing the below:
"Our correspondent BUDD Group reports that each vessel calling at anchorage at Base Buoy (B9) at Douala Port, Cameroon will now be provided with an armed security team for their protection. This team will remain onboard the vessel throughout her stay at anchorage and will leave after berthing.
This service will be free and will be conducted for an indefinite period.
We attach a copy of this briefing from the Port Authority of Douala, as well as an article from BUDD, providing a port profile on Douala, Cameroon, for further guidance.

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.
