Whitepaper: Shipping operations in the Persian Gulf
Shipping operations in the Persian Gulf
The attacks against tankers off Fujairah in May and in the Gulf of Oman in June had a direct impact on the threat to shipping operations in the Persian Gulf. More recently, a crude oil tanker reported harassment by Iranian naval boats, an apparent retaliation after a tanker carrying oil from Iran had been seized off Gibraltar.
Risk Intelligence has published a whitepaper which examines the events leading up to these incidents and provides a short analysis of the current situation. Several scenarios outline the potential impact on shipping operations in the Persian Gulf over the coming months, highlighting the need for contingency plans and relevant mitigation measures. These are needed for individual vessels, but also necessary on the company level and should be based on a comprehensive security risk assessment, including relevant threats, vulnerabilities and consequences.
