Status of ship:Total loss since 24-10-2009 (Equasis)

Salvage of LORT 2009-10-24
Coastal tanker LORT (ex Wheelsman)was found abandoned and sunk by the
stern by the Nigerian Maritime and Safety Administration a 12 nautical miles
from the entrance of Imo River of Eket, Akwa Ibom State. It was suspected
that the vessel had been used for illegal bunkering and that she had been
abandoned when she was sinking.

AMS-BP was contracted by NIMASA to take the casualty in tow and to take
her to Calabar to ensure safety of the navigation along the shipping route
especially for the oil platforms belonging to the oil companies operating in the area.

On arrival in position of the casualty the LORT was found to be aground by
the stern and both engine room and aft tanks were filled with sea water. A
dive inspection revealed a number of holes in the engine room shell plating.

After 4 days of underwater repairs and subsequent pumping of the engine
room and aft tanks, the casualty was towed to Calabar and delivered to a
ship breaking yard for scrapping as advised by the client.
