Billions Bunker Group registered tankers denied port entry

22 Jan 2018

Two Billions Bunker Group affiliated oil tankers, namely Kings Way and Twins Bull, were denied entry at Kaohsiung Port in Taiwan.

The vessels are on Taiwan's no entry list and watch list due to alleged violations of United Nations sanctions, Yao Chou-tien, head of Taiwan’s Coast Guard Administration's (CGA) Department of Coastal Control, told CNA.

According to Yao, CGA sent a team to inspect the Twins Bull but found no prohibited cargo on board. The Kings Way could not be search during the same time due to bad weather conditions.

In early January, a tanker operated by Taiwan-based Billions Bunker Group was caught delivering bunker fuel to a North Korean vessel, along with other ships.

To date, the company has been reportedly de-registered from the corporate registry of the Marshall Islands.
