Singapore: The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) has continued its clampdown on bunker suppliers not adhering to the terms and conditions of their bunkering licences, cancelling the licenses of Excel Petroleum Enterprise Pte Ltd and Lian Hoe Leong & Brothers Pte Ltd with effect from today.
Both companies allegedly breached Clause 3 of the terms and conditions of the bunkering licence by allowing other companies to use their bunker delivery notes to supply bunkers.
Excel Petroleum Enterprise and Lian Hoe Leong & Brothers will no longer be allowed to operate as bunker suppliers in the Port of Singapore. The MPA is also looking into the companies who used the notes from these companies to supply the bunkers.
Coast-Channels Marine Services Pte Ltd, Golden Lights HS Bunkering Pte Ltd, Shing Li Shipping Pte Ltd and Palmstone Petroleum Pte Ltd all had their licenses cancelled during 2013 for breaching their license terms and conditions.
In 2013, Singapore recorded bunker sales volume of 42.7m tonnes. [15/01/14]
