MV Pramoni is a Singapore registered chemical tanker.


The ship was owned by the Indonesian company Berlian Laju Tanker until 2008, when it was bought by the Norwegian company Platou.[2]


The Pramoni was hijacked by Somali pirates on 1 January 2010 in the Gulf of Aden in the International Recommended Transit Corridor and, after payment of a ransom, released along with its crew of 24 on 26 February 2010, during which time it was held at Eyl in Somalia.[3][4][5][6] The pirates were returning from a trip to Yemen, where they had taken illegal migrants.[7]
