Ports of Auckland subsidiary Seafuels secures low-sulphur bunker fuel supply with BP

27 May 2021

Ports of Auckland bunkering subsidiary Seafuels and BP have reached an agreement to use the bunker barge Awanuia to deliver Very Low Sulphur Fuel Oil (VLSFO) and Marine Gas Oil (MGO) to the marine market at Auckland port.

The partnership announced by the port on Monday (24 May) allows BP to re-enter the New Zealand VLSFO market and once again deliver VLSFO to its customers.

Bunker barge Awanuia will deliver bunker fuel to BP’s shipping customers in Auckland.

The agreement will help ensure New Zealand is able to meet its international obligations under Annex VI of the MARPOL convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships, by providing international and domestic vessels calling New Zealand with MARPOL compliant fuels.

New Zealand joined MARPOL in 1998 and is due to sign up to Annex VI from late 2021.
