MPA Singapore revokes Transocean Oil bunkering license

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) has revoked the bunker supplier and bunker craft operator licences of Transocean Oil as part of its ongoing regulatory efforts to ensure the integrity of bunkering in Singapore, the world’s largest bunkering hub.

Transocean will no longer be allowed to operate as bunker supplier and bunker craft operator in the Port of Singapore.

According to MPA, it conducted investigations into Transocean in March and April this year and found several falsifications of records and discrepancies in the stock movement logbooks on board bunker tankers operated by Transocean, which breached the terms and conditions of their bunker supplier and bunker craft operator licences.

Since 2014, MPA has been cracking down on companies not complying to the standards and regulations resulting in the cancellation of several bunker licenses.
