Singapore bunker supplier Inter-Pacific Petroleum Pte Ltd (IPP) has responded to a media query from Singapore bunker publication Manifold Times.

“There was an alleged incident onboard a vessel chartered by us,” Dr Goh Jin Hian, Director of IPP, told Manifold Times on Friday (28 June).

“We feel it was premature for MPA [Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore] to have suspended our bunker craft operator licence without having discussed the incident with us and giving us a chance to review the facts.

“Nonetheless, the company is conducting its internal investigations and will be submitting its report to MPA by next week.”

Dr Goh noted IPP’s operations are still ongoing as it continues to hold a bunker delivery note (BDN) licence and it has received the support of another bunker craft operator to assist with the delivery of its orders.

“We have held the highest standards of integrity and service excellence since we started operations in 2012 and will continue to do so,” he states.
