The Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA) on Friday (9 December) said it detained a fishing vessel and its three foreign crew members in Langkawi waters believed to be illegally smuggling subsidised diesel oil. 

Kedah and Perlis MMEA said the agency’s patrol boat detected a local fishing boat and was stopped after displaying several suspicious signs at 5.0 nautical miles west Tanjung Chincin at 10.40pm on 8 December. 

Upon inspection, enforcement officers found a hidden space was added with two containers containing 10,000 litres of diesel oil.

The estimated value of diesel oil that was being smuggled is worth RM 21,500. 

“The three Thai men, aged between 22 and 59 years, and the boat have been detained and have been brought to Bukit Malut Maritime Jetty for further investigations”, MMEA said.

The case is being investigated under the Fisheries Act 1985 for violating terms of their licences. If found guilty, they could be fined not more than RM20,000 or jailed for up to two years or both.

Titan completes first STS LNG bunkering operation in Cuxhaven

LNG bunker fuel supplier Titan on Thursday (11 July) said it completed the first-ever LNG bunkering operation by ship in the port of Cuxhaven.

Titan’s bunker vessel Optimus successfully delivered LNG to dredger Vox Ariane operated by its long-term client Van Oord. 

“Our ship-to-ship bunkering in Cuxhaven represents a pioneering step in the region's LNG infrastructure development, as the port had previously only seen LNG operations conducted via truck and currently only permits LNG bunkering at one berth,” it said in a social media post. 

“LNG infrastructure development is part of a broader trend, with more ports across Germany adopting LNG operations to support shipping’s clean fuels transition.”

Titan added the improved LNG bunkering capabilities in Cuxhaven, a Niedersachsen Ports GmbH & Co. KG port, also opened up the pathway to maritime decarbonisation via liquified biomethane (LBM) and then renewable e-methane going forward.

UECC “Auto Achieve” receives first LNG bunker fuel delivery by barge in home country

Norwegian roll-on/roll-off shipping line United European Car Carriers (UECC) on Wednesday (10 July) said it received the first ever supply of LNG by barge to their multi-fuel LNG battery hybrid car carrier Auto Achieve in the Port of Drammen on 4 July.

The firm said this was the first time UECC received LNG by barge to any of their vessels in their home country Norway. 

“We also believe that it was the first time LNG was delivered by barge to any vessel in Drammen, and most likely the entire Oslofjord,” UECC said in a social media post.

The LNG was supplied by the Molgas Energy Holding vessel Pioneer Knutsen, owned by Knutsen Group OAS.

“UECC is very pleased to see the expansion of the LNG barge network in Norway,” it said.
