MPA: Bunker craft operator licence of New Maritime will not be renewed

16 May 2023

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) on Monday (15 May) said will not be renewing the bunker craft operator licence of New Maritime Pte Ltd and it will expire on 16 June 2023.

“On and from 17 June 2023, New Maritime Pte Ltd will cease to be licensed and must not continue to operate as a bunker craft operator within the Singapore Port,” MPA said in a port marine circular.

MPA did not disclose any reasons for the non-renewal of the licence but said “MPA has zero-tolerance for any type of fraud, corruption or bunkering malpractice.”

“This Port Marine Circular also seeks to remind all bunker licence holders (including bunker suppliers and bunker craft operators) to comply strictly with all the terms and conditions of the respective bunker licence(s),” it warned.

“MPA will not hesitate to take firm action against any bunker supplier or bunker craft operator that contravenes any of its bunker licence terms and conditions, including taking into account such contraventions in considering whether to renew the bunker licence(s), suspending or cancelling the bunker licence(s), and/or taking enforcement action against such bunker licensee.”
