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:
OceanConnect Marine Pte. Ltd.

Heating VLSFOs to prevent cold flow issues causes issues related to distillate ageing, and there is a gentle balance to be maintained when handling the product.
Research into n-paraffin distribution of VLSFOs has shown that they not only differ from MGO, but significantly differ from each other as well, states bulletin.
Bunker Holding and Dan-Bunkering have decided not to appeal the city court ruling in the case where the companies were on trial for breaching EU sanctions against Syria, states USTC.
Poll shows market participants think Singapore’s future as a bunkering hub in the near term will be impacted most by growth in alternative bunker fuels and intensifying competition from other ports in Asia.
