Dear Mr Bradshaw
Please see the following regulations from the International Maritime Organization and it is clear that the Chad/Cameroon Pipeline Offshore floating storage tanker is obsolete but still in service.
The offshore floating storage tanker, the Komi Kribi 1, is a Category One(1) Single - hull tanker, therefore became obsolete on its 30th birthday. This tanker was built in 1977; hence past its sell by date.
This is a serious breach of International Maritime Organization regulations (see attached). Hence, I call upon my MP to write to the DFID and World Bank calling for this tanker to be replaced with a double hull tanker in line with IMO regulations.
Maybe Boris Johnston could have a word with Rex Tillerson about this serious safety and environmental matter!
