The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) has revoked the bunker craft operator licence of Inter-Pacific Petroleum as part of its ongoing effort to ensure the integrity of bunkering in Singapore.
MPA suspended the licence of Inter-Pacific Petroleum in June after an enforcement check on a bunker tanker operated by the company.
MPA investigations found magnetic interference affecting measurements of bunkers supplied in numerous mass flow meter readings across Inter-Pacific’s fleet of bunker tankers. Inter-Pacific had also failed to ensure that its employees, including its cargo officers, comply with the terms and conditions of its licence.
Inter-Pacific will not be allowed to operate as a bunker craft operator in the Port of Singapore.
In May, MPA also revoked the bunker supplier licence of Southernpec.
