Security - Libyan ports

Much has been written in the press recently regarding the security situation in Libya. As far as we can ascertain the following terminals are NOT reporting significant security problems:

Mellitah – Jorf – Bouri –Zzawia – Brega

However, the following ARE experiencing security problems:

Essider – Ras Lanuf –Zueitina- Marsa el Hariga

In any event, we would urge that prior to any vessel calling at a terminal in Libya, consultations should be undertaken to gain the best information regarding the security situation. In this regard we would suggest consultations with the vessel's flag as well as with any country which provides good quality information on security situations.
