The Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) on Friday (18 November) published an updated marine notice providing guidance on the recording of operations in the Oil Record Book Part I.

The marine notice advises of the availability of guidance for the recording of operations in the Oil Record Book Part I – machinery space operations (all ships), prepared and issued by the International Maritime Organization (IMO).

The guidance document assists compliance with the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL) requirements on board ships by providing advice to crews on how to record the various operations in the Oil Record Book. In particular, the guidance document provides advice on using the correct codes and item numbers to ensure a more uniform port State control procedure.

The guidance is to be applied in conjunction with the amendments to MARPOL Annex I that entered into force on 1 January 2011. The guidance document provides specific examples for the recording of information within the Oil Record Book Part I for the following:

  • collection of oil residues (sludge)
  • disposal or transfer of oil residues (sludge)
  • non-automatic discharge overboard or disposal otherwise of bilge water which has accumulated in machinery spaces
  • automatic  discharge  overboard  or disposal otherwise of bilge water which has accumulated in machinery spaces
  • condition of oil filtering equipment
  • accidental  or other  exceptional  discharge  of oil
  • bunkering of fuel or bulk lubricating oil
  • additional operational procedures and general remarks
  • tankers with slop tanks, and
  • general guidance – additional voluntary recordings.

A copy of the guidance document, MEPC.1/Circ.736/Rev.2 can be obtained from the IMO website or by contacting [email protected]. Oil Record Books can be purchased from AMSA through the publications order form.

Titan completes first STS LNG bunkering operation in Cuxhaven

LNG bunker fuel supplier Titan on Thursday (11 July) said it completed the first-ever LNG bunkering operation by ship in the port of Cuxhaven.

Titan’s bunker vessel Optimus successfully delivered LNG to dredger Vox Ariane operated by its long-term client Van Oord. 

“Our ship-to-ship bunkering in Cuxhaven represents a pioneering step in the region's LNG infrastructure development, as the port had previously only seen LNG operations conducted via truck and currently only permits LNG bunkering at one berth,” it said in a social media post. 

“LNG infrastructure development is part of a broader trend, with more ports across Germany adopting LNG operations to support shipping’s clean fuels transition.”

Titan added the improved LNG bunkering capabilities in Cuxhaven, a Niedersachsen Ports GmbH & Co. KG port, also opened up the pathway to maritime decarbonisation via liquified biomethane (LBM) and then renewable e-methane going forward.

UECC “Auto Achieve” receives first LNG bunker fuel delivery by barge in home country

Norwegian roll-on/roll-off shipping line United European Car Carriers (UECC) on Wednesday (10 July) said it received the first ever supply of LNG by barge to their multi-fuel LNG battery hybrid car carrier Auto Achieve in the Port of Drammen on 4 July.

The firm said this was the first time UECC received LNG by barge to any of their vessels in their home country Norway. 

“We also believe that it was the first time LNG was delivered by barge to any vessel in Drammen, and most likely the entire Oslofjord,” UECC said in a social media post.

The LNG was supplied by the Molgas Energy Holding vessel Pioneer Knutsen, owned by Knutsen Group OAS.

“UECC is very pleased to see the expansion of the LNG barge network in Norway,” it said.
