Trading firms Mercuria, Trafigura and GP Global have applied for bunker supplier licenses with the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA), reports Reuters.

Applications for the license to the MPA closed at the end of January and two China-based companies have also purportedly submitted their applications.

A Mercuria source confirmed to Reuters  the company has applied for a license. Trafigura declined to comment on the matter and GP Global, along with the MPA did not respond to comment requests.

According to the MPA website, companies must now apply for both bunker supplier and bunker craft operator licenses. 

Applicants must also possess and operate a minimum of two dual fuel bunker tankers that run on dual-fuel technology.
