PHILIPSBURG--Vessels in Simpson Bay Lagoon are no longer allowed to conduct fuel bunkering and provisioning activities as of midnight Tuesday, March 24.

Prime Minister and Emergency Operations Center (EOC) Chairperson Silveria Jacobs decided to discontinue the activities as a result of infringements. Provisioning and fuel bunkering will only be allowed if the vessel is already docked at a facility that provides these services such as a marina or docking location.

It was brought to the attention of the EOC on Tuesday that procedures were not being followed in accordance to the directives that were stated before in order to protect the external borders of the country, Jacobs said in a press release issued early Wednesday morning.
