International clean fuels provider PitPoint on Monday (22 June) said it has completed a bunkering operation for liquefied natural gas (LNG) powered tanker Ecotanker III at its shore-to-ship bunkering station for LNG in Cologne, Germany.
PitPoint’s LNG shore-to-ship bunkering station was opened in 2019 and significantly expedites the bunkering process by offering round the clock services.
More powerful pumps and lesser documentation, when compared to a truck-to-ship bunkering station which required customers to submit a request and schedule an appointment, allows customers to receive LNG bunker fuel in a more straightforward manner.
PitPoint notes the shore-to-ship bunker station is open 24/7, with professional service engineers available to provide bunkering services.

IBIA Asia, ABIS, sources from Singapore’s bunkering and surveying companies, and an industry veteran share with Manifold Times the issues expected from MPA’s latest Covid-19 measures.

‘We will operate in the Singapore bunkering market from the Tokyo, with support from local staff at Sumitomo Corporation Singapore,’ source tells Manifold Times.
Changes include abolishing advance declaration of bunkers as dangerous cargo, reducing pilotage fees on vessels receiving bunkers, and a ‘whitelist’ system for bunker tankers.
Claim relates to deliveries of MGO to the vessels Pacific Diligence, Pacific Valkyrie, Pacific Defiance, Crest Alpha 1, and Pacific Warlock between March 2020 to April 2020.
3,490 mt of LSFO from Itochu Enex was lifted at Universal Terminal; the same bunker stem was bought by Global Marine Logistics and delivered by bunker tanker Juma to receiving vessel Kirana Nawa.
