The UAE has banned bunker vessels operated and managed by domestic firms Warm Seas Development and Victoriam from operating in UAE waters and ports with immediate effect, citing "serious violations".

2 June, 2022

The UAE's ministry of energy issued a circular on 30 May, citing "a need to safeguard maritime operations in the UAE waters" and "serious violations" of UAE laws, maritime conventions and maritime customs. The exact nature of the violations by Warm Seas and Victoria remain unknown. Argus has asked the ministry of energy for comments.

The companies mentioned in the circular are banned from providing any maritime services to any ship in the UAE.

The ban includes but is not limited to three barges — the Panama-flagged 7,654 deadweight (dwt) tonne Maximus and two Malta-flagged vessels the 7,695dwt Atticus and the 13,904dwt Amelia.

Bunker market participants expect the ban to tighten barge schedules in UAE ports, particularly in the world's third-largest bunkering centre of Fujairah.

"Barge schedules were already quite tight even before the ban was announced. Three suppliers who use these barges will be definitely affected", a Fujairah-based trader said.

Global bunker supplier Montfort is one of the suppliers, market participants said. The firm is a major supplier of bunker-grade high-sulphur fuel oil and chartered the Amelia to deliver to vessels calling Fujairah. Other vessels were used by suppliers UAE-based Pearl Marine, part of Consort Bunkers Singapore, and Danish firm Monjasa in the ports of Fujairah and Jebel Ali.

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.
