MPA Singapore revokes bunker supplier licence of Southernpec

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) has revoked the bunker supplier licence of Southernpec with effect from May 29, after having suspended its operating licence at the end of April.

Southernpec will cease to operate as a bunker supplier in the Port of Singapore.

During a recent enforcement check, MPA found that Southernpec had failed to ensure that its employees comply with the terms and conditions of their licence.

Its employees engaged in bunker malpractices, which included the use of magnets to interfere with the mass flow meter during bunkering operations and its cargo officers also did not record the information in the bunkering documents accurately, which breached the terms and conditions of its bunker supplier licence.
