We respond to numerous pirate attacks on our clients’ vessels every year. Media management for such cases requires close collaboration between all the organizations mobilized to support the shipping company and the seafarers on board.
To provide the best information to our stakeholders, we are proud to have partnered with EOS Risk Group, a leading professional security services company, to provide this in-depth report on the evolving regional situation. The report provides statistics, explores factors that contribute to piracy and examines the emerging trends.
The frequency of pirate attack in the Gulf of Guinea in 2017 was largely unchanged from 2016, however, concerningly, the number of seafarers taken hostage in these attacks increased by 44% year on year.

Maritime response organisations often charge tankers a premium, but whatever justification there may be for hiking the prices for some response services (e.g. oil spill response), tankers should not be charged an inflated rate for media response.
It appears that many tanker operators are so used to paying a little more for almost everything that they don’t question a quote for media response services that blatantly charges them more for the tankers in their fleet.
Tanker owners/managers need to start demanding fair pricing.
