Geneva-based Minerva Bunkering, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Mercuria Energy Group, on Monday (20 December) said it has launched a new marine fuels supply service in Argentina, providing deliveries in Buenos Aires and surrounding ports.
Delivery locations include Serving Buenos Aires, Zona Comun, Campana/Zarate, and other regional ports upon appointment
The development adds Argentina to Minerva’s flexible multiport contract structures covering the Americas, EMEA, and Asia ports
“By adding this new operation to Minerva’s footprint, we can offer vessels calling Argentine ports physical supply options across the length of their voyages, providing the flexibility our customers require with the consistency of service they know they can expect from Minerva,” states Minerva CEO Tyler Baron.
“Leveraging the unique breadth of Minerva’s global physical network is fundamental to how we serve our clients.”
Offtake agreements with local refiners and the time-chartered bunker tanker MT HE MAN H, enable the physical supply system.
Minerva staff with 18 years of experience spanning operations and sales exclusively focused on the Argentina market support customers from inquiry through post-delivery.
