Ghana-based AI Energy says piracy is on the rise in the Gulf of Guinea, prompting the physical supplier and country as a whole to take steps to address the issue and ensure safe bunkering operations.
"Ghana is fast cementing its efforts to become the bunkering hub of Africa by the creation of bunkering zones to reduce the risk of rampant piracy along the Gulf of Guinea," Theodora Ashare,
Business Development Senior Officer (Corporate Upstream) at AI Energy Group told Ship & Bunker.
"The rate of piracy within the Gulf of Guinea in the first two months of 2021 has already surpassed that of the first quarter of 2020. This menace prompted the collaboration of the Royal Navy of the United Kingdom with Ghana to join forces to combat this appalling threat."
Some 1,500 vessels that ply the Gulf of Guinea route every day, and AI Energy says it has taken its own additional steps to ensure those vessels bunkering in the region can do so safely.
