West P&I’s local correspondent in Sudan has reported that the Port Sudan situation has stabilized, “a positive development for the city considering the ongoing clashes between the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) and the army”.
The report from Mutual Marine Services Al Mushtaraka Ltd on April 20th stated that shops in the port city were open, and that people were “going about their daily activities as usual, indicating that the local population is not unduly affected by any security concerns or other disruptions”.
All roads and bridges in Port Sudan were currently open for transporting goods to and from the port, and load and discharge operations were continuing as usual in the port itself.
Furthermore, the oil terminal at Bashayer, an essential facility that handles Sudan’s oil exports located near Port Sudan, was reported to be operating normally.
West noted that, while the recent update on the current situation in Port Sudan was positive news, “we still encourage Members to remain vigilant and leverage local networks for up-to-date information to mitigate potential losses and ensure the safety of their assets”.
