Vessels continue to be detained by Indonesian authorities while at anchor in waters around the island of Bintan. The ships believed that they had anchored at OPL Singapore, but had in fact anchored within Indonesian territorial waters. Earlier in the year, North Clun had informed that an increasing number of vessels are being detained by Indonesian authorities while at anchor in the waters around the island of Bintan.
According to a recent release by the North P&I Club, its SPICA correspondents in Indonesia informed about an increasing number of vessels being detained by the local authorities while they are at anchor in the waters around the island of Bintan, which is a popular place for vessels to “waiting for orders” because it is close to shipping lanes, and believed to be OPL (Operational Port Limited) Singapore. However, these waters are within Indonesian territorial waters where local regulation apply.
