Editors note: Bunker volume figures for Sentek Marine & Trading updated on 20 January 2023.

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) on Monday (16 January) updated its list of top bunker suppliers by volume in 2022.

A survey conducted by Singapore marine fuels publication Manifold Times with selected industry sources revealed the estimated annual bunker sales volume for the republic’s top 10 Singapore bunker suppliers in 2022:

ANNUAL FIGURES OF TOP 10 BUNKER SUPPLIERS BY VOLUME (YEAR 2022)
Position BUNKER SUPPLIERS Volume in 2022
1 EQUATORIAL MARINE FUEL MANAGEMENT SERVICES PTE LTD  4.5 million mt
2 PETROCHINA INTERNATIONAL (S) PTE LTD 4.2 million mt
3 TFG MARINE PTE LTD 3.9 - 4.0 million mt
4 VITOL BUNKERS (S) PTE. LTD. 3.8 million mt
5 SHELL EASTERN TRADING (PTE) LTD Unavailable

7 GLOBAL ENERGY TRADING PTE LTD 2.4 -2.5 million mt
8 CHEVRON SINGAPORE PTE LTD Unavailable
9 MINERVA BUNKERING PTE LTD 1.9 - 2.0 million mt
10 SENTEK MARINE & TRADING PTE LTD 1.5-1.6 million mt

 

The republic welcomed a new bunker supplier Sinopec Fuel Oil (Singapore) Pte. Ltd in June 2022, making it the first new player in the world’s largest bunkering hub since April 2020. Despite a later start of the year, the firm claimed the 19th spot in the 2022 list. 

The top three positive movers in 2022 were Bunker House Petroleum Pte Ltd (+7), Eastpoint International Marketing Pte Ltd (+5), and Eng Hua Company (Pte) Ltd (+6). 

Glencore Singapore dropped by seven places from the 6th to 13th; its bunker licence was temporarily suspended for two months after MPA found it supplied contaminated high-sulphur fuel oil to vessels at the port during the first quarter of 2022.

A list of all bunker suppliers ranked by volume in 2022 (versus position in 2021) and their movement are as follows (best viewed on desktops):

Singapore-based Eastern Pacific Shipping (EPS) on Wednesday (28 February) said it signed two new contract orders in a signing ceremony in Shanghai, one for a series of ammonia dual-fuel bulk carriers with CSSC Beihai Shipbuilding and another for a series of LNG dual-fuel oil tankers with CSSC Guangzhou Shipbuilding International. 

The contracts signed cover four 210,000 dwt ammonia dual-fuel bulk carriers and two 111,000 dwt LNG dual-fuel LR2 oil tankers, expanding our fleet of green vessels on water. 

“These are pivotal for EPS, testament to our continued commitment towards the decarbonisation of shipping,” EPS said in a social media post.

Manifold Times recently reported EPS signing a contract for its first ever wind-assisted propulsion system, partnering with bound4blue to install three 22-metre eSAILs® onboard the Pacific Sentinel

The turnkey ‘suction sail’ technology, which drags air across an aerodynamic surface to generate exceptional propulsive efficiency, will be fitted later this year, helping the 183-metre, 50,000 DWT oil and chemical tanker reduce overall energy consumption by approximately 10%, depending on vessel routing.

Port of Tanjung Pelepas Sdn Bhd (PTP), a joint venture between MMC Group and APM Terminals, on Wednesday (28 February) announced a significant milestone with the successful completion of its first Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) bunkering operation. 

The landmark event involved the CMA CGM Monaco, a 14,024 TEUs (Twenty-foot Equivalent Units) capacity containership operated by French shipping giant, CMA CGM.

Tan Sri Che Khalib Mohamad Noh, Chairman of PTP in a statement remarked this latest milestone demonstrates PTP’s commitment to continuously enhance its competitive advantages in an increasingly competitive global market.

“The successful completion of our first LNG bunkering operation also underscores our unwavering commitment to sustainability and environmental leadership. We are proud to partner with Petronas Trading Corporation Sendirian Berhad (PETCO) and CMA CGM on this initiative and showcase PTP’s capabilities as a leading facilitator of clean and efficient maritime operations.”

“This milestone paves the way for further growth in LNG bunkering at PTP, contributing significantly to the decarbonisation of the maritime industry.”

Commenting on this achievement, Mark Hardiman, Chief Executive Officer of PTP stated this latest milestone further highlights PTP’s position as the largest transshipment hub terminal in Malaysia.

“In preparation for the LNG bunkering operation, PTP worked closely since March 2022 with PETCO and CMA CGM, as well as with various other related government agencies to organise table-top exercises (TTX) and workshops, before carrying out the deployment exercise.”

“The success of the bunkering operation is a result of the seamless collaboration and preparations involving rigorous safety procedures through in-depth operational and risk assessments, modelling, and validation. We thank PETCO, CMA CGM all other involved parties for their joint efforts in operationalising the bunkering capability and we welcome partners to work with us to accelerate maritime decarbonisation,” said Hardiman.

Port of Tanjung Pelepas (PTP) is Malaysia’s largest transshipment hub with the capacity to handle 13 million TEUs annually. The port delivers reliable, efficient, and advanced services to major shipping lines and box operators, providing shippers in Malaysia and abroad with extensive connectivity to the global market. PTP is currently ranked 15th among the world top container ports.

Wallenius Wilhelmsen PCTC order

Roll-on/roll-off (Ro-Ro) shipping company Wallenius Wilhelmsen on Tuesday (27 February) declared options to build four additional next-generation Shaper Class pure car and truck carrier (PCTC) vessels.

The 9,300 CEU methanol dual fuel vessels can utilise alternative fuel sources, such as methanol, upon delivery. They will also be ammonia-ready and able to be converted as soon as ammonia becomes available in a safe and secure way.

“Together with our customers we are committed to further shaping our industry and accelerating towards net zero. These new vessels are a vital part of that journey,” says Xavier Leroi, EVP & COO Shipping Services.

This latest commitment brings the total number of Shaper Class vessels currently on order with Jinling Shipyard (Jiangsu) to eight. Wallenius Wilhelmsen also retains further options.

The first of the Shaper Class vessels already ordered are expected to be delivered in the second half of 2026. The four additional vessels under the declared options will be delivered between May and November 2027.
