German energy company Uniper has declared force majeure on bunker fuel supply from its 67,000 b/d topping refinery at the UAE port of Fujairah on the back of widespread flooding that has disrupted operations at the world's third largest marine fuels hub since last week.

Uniper, a major supplier in the local bunker market, has notified buyers of its very low-sulphur fuel oil that the situation constitutes a force majeure event and that it is "excused from any non-performance under the contract". Fellow bunker supplier and terminal operator GPS Chemoil has also declared force majeure after its facilities were flooded.

Several barges have lined up at terminals in Fujairah waiting for loadings to resume. Trading firm Vitol is understood to have restarted limited loading but conditions are still not stable, according to market participants.

"It will take time for the backlog to clear and any vessel that arrived recently will either wait or sail out to return for lifting bunker fuel later," a Fujairah trader said.

A major bunker supplier that had planned to resume deliveries on 10 August is now giving 15 August as the earliest restart date.

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.
