Libyan Ports – Operating Status
Following a number of recent enquiries by Assureds on the current status of Libyan ports, our correspondents, ELIAS MARINE CONSULTANTS, have kindly provided us with the following update:
– Al Khoms
– Marsa El Brega
– Marsa El Hariga
– Es Sider
– Ras Lanuf
Given that the situation is constantly changing, our correspondents recommend that Assureds check the situation prior to fixing a vessel to any Libyan port and, once fixed, to notify the local agent of the operations expected to take place at the port. This should include:
- a declaration of the vessel’s sailing route;
- whether they are loading or discharging cargo; and
- the type of cargo on board so as the agents may notify the appropriate Authorities.
Assured are advised to carefully review the above guidelines if they are considering fixing a vessel to call at Libyan ports.
