Members who transit the Persian Gulf, Gulf of Oman, Gulf of Aden and Red Sea should note that earlier this month, a tanker conducting STS operations in the Persian Gulf reported a limpet mine attached to the hull of the vessel. Whilst the device was removed with no injuries or damage sustained, there was no indication as to where or when the device was attached to the hull.
Members transiting the Persian Gulf, Gulf of Oman, Gulf of Aden and Red Sea should take note of the Guidance, which is available here.
