Tug boat sinks, 12 still missing

Three days after a tug boat contracted by Chevron Nigeria Limited sank off the coast of Delta State, 12 crewmembers are still missing, according to West African Ventures, owners of the vessel.
The tug boat sank on Sunday due to what the ship owner described as “rough seas” off the coast of Nigeria.
Chevron had confirmed in a statement that the Jascon-4 capsized early on Sunday due to “heavy ocean swells” while the vessel was “performing towing operations” at a mooring point around 30 kilometres off oil-producing Delta State.
