An offshore vessel has reportedly been attacked in the Gulf of Guinea, offshore Nigeria.

According to Asket.co.uk, the MV Chilosco vessel was reportedly attacked some 31 nautical miles south of Brass, Nigeria on Tuesday, December 13.

Offshore Energy Today is working to verify this info, and will provide further updates if and when available.

While Asket describes the vessel as the offshore supply ship, this is probably the Fast Support Intervention Vessel built by Damen in 2014.

The 53.3-meter vessel has been listed as under ownership of LATC Marine from Nigeria.  It is used for for crew changes at deep offshore fields and urgent cargo shipments.
