Access the latest Maritime Security Threat Advisory for the week commencing 5th December 2022.

👉 The last reporting period has seen little incident activity globally. The hiatus comes off the back of a period of unusually high activity particularly within the Strait of Malacca and Singapore where 7 incidents were reported within a 5-day period. All incidents continue to be focused around the central theme of robbery and theft of cargo.

👉 Incidents within the Indian Ocean and West Africa saw a return to familiar themes of Iranian drone strikes and fuel theft. Incidents in both areas within the last reporting period have indicated a lull in activity.

👉 Within the Black Sea the maritime domain continues to play a central role. With the imposition of the Russian oil cap, it remains to be seen what impact this has across wider markets and Russian activity.
