Due to the current heightened threat level, the Norwegian Coastal Administration has decided to raise the maritime security to level 2 for selected port facilities as of 1 p.m. on Friday 30 September and until further notice.

It is the responsibility of the Norwegian Coastal Administration to determine applicable maritime security levels for Norwegian ports and port facilities. The security level that is applied to port facilities also applies to calling ships. This means that the ships will need to raise their own security levels to the levels of the ports of call.

The Norwegian Maritime Authority requests that all ships intending to call at the affected ports prepare and activate required measures.

The following ports now have security level 2:

  • Equinor Mongstad
  • Sture terminal, Øygarden
