Navy launches website to fight oil theft

25 April 2013, 11:42Henry Ifeanyi

Lagos  -The Nigerian Navy says it has launched a new website which it intends to use to fight crude oil theft and pipeline vandalism.

Commodore Kabiru Aliyu, Navy Director of Information said the Navy had mounted the website, www.cot.navy.mil.ng to provide details relating to exploration, nominations, approvals, movement and trans-shipment of petroleum products as promulgated by relevant authorities.

Aliyu noted that the website will also serve as a platform to share information, exchange ideas with the international community and reports of suspicious activities.

"The only authorised agency that is allowed to nominate, approve lifting, movement and trans-shipment of petroleum products by whatever means of transportation is the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC).

"In this light, any vessel not nominated or approved to lift petroleum products by NNPC has contravened established regulations relating to lifting/ transportation of petroleum products and is therefore liable for prosecution as provided by law."
