Marine fuels firm Monjasa is supplying bunkers to a Danish anti-piracy operation in West Africa.

Denmark's frigate the Esbern Snare has arrived in the Gulf of Guinea to patrol in the area and discourage piracy, news agency Maritime Danmark reported on Wednesday. The ship will coordinate its activities with those of the Italian, British, French and Portuguese navies in the region.

Monjasa has already supplied the vessel with its first stem of bunker fuel from the Monjasa Ranger

Monjasa is a signatory to the Gulf of Guinea Declaration, calling for further naval support in the region to combat piracy. The Gulf of Guinea was responsible for more than 95% of the 135 seafarer kidnappings reported globally last year.
