“Arising from an enforcement check on a bunker tanker operated by Inter-Pacific Petroleum Pte Ltd (Inter-Pacific), the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) has temporarily suspended Inter-Pacific’s bunker craft operator licence with effect from 27 June 2019 until further notice,” it said.
