OceanConnect Marine, a subsidiary of global commodities trading firm Glencore, on Monday (14 January) said it has moved to a new larger office.
“After adding a Korea supply team of four people, plus traders covering Singapore fuel requirements, we needed more space than was available in our Millenia Tower location,” OCM Global Managing Director S.I. Shim said.
The expansion began in February 2018 when a Singapore-based Korea supply team joined the company.
Two additional traders were added in July, and a credit manager joined in September.
The team in Singapore is now supplying more than 200,000 metric tonnes of bunker per month.
“Singapore will be the hub of our Asian operation, and we intend to expand aggressively with additional talented people. The new space affords the opportunity for further expansion,” Shim adds.
The new office more than doubles the company’s prior office space in Millenia Tower.
The company’s new Singapore office location is as follows:

All bunker vessels that have received the necessary clearance for out of port bunkering operations may do so at the stated Tompok Utara coordinates only or risk penalty, according to the MMEA.
The COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve and MPA is working closely with other agencies to monitor the situation, both globally and in Singapore, the port authority tells Manifold Times.
Caroline Yang, President of SSA, addresses issues earlier raised by players; including PMC No. 04, the seven-day restriction, contactless bunkering, sampling point, hose connection, and more.
