MPA revokes Inter-Pacific Petroleum Pte Ltd bunker supplier licence

09 Dec 2019

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) on Monday (9 December) revoked the bunker supplier licence of Inter-Pacific Petroleum Pte Ltd (Inter-Pacific).

With effect from 9 December 2019, Inter-Pacific will cease to operate as a bunker supplier in the Port of Singapore.

“Inter-Pacific had filed for judicial management at the High Court of the Republic of Singapore and a judicial manager has since been appointed,” it stated.

“With the appointment of the judicial manager, Inter-Pacific has failed to meet the terms and conditions of the bunker supplier licence, leading to the revocation of the licence.”

The development follows MPA’s earlier revocation of Inter-Pacific’s bunker craft operator licence on 15 October 2019 due to bunkering malpractices.

Earlier on Monday, Manifold Times reported the Director of Inter-Pacific Petroleum and its parent company Inter-Pacific Group Pte Ltd (IPG) making ‘clear admission’ to the Singapore branch of Societe Generale that both firms were involved in a fraud.
