Iraq bunkering firm Sea-crown Marine services, which claims to have the exclusive license to supply bunkers in Iraqi territorial waters from the Iraqi National Maritime Transportation Authority, will be offering IMO 2020 compliant marine fuel from October 2019 onwards.
“We are poised to start the supply of LSFO (low sulphur fuel oil) soon and we will be supplying bunkers alongside Basra Crude oil terminal while vessels loading crude oil soon as well,” Nawroz Saeed, Managing Director, told Manifold Times.
“Currently we are supplying approximately 20,000 to 25,000 mt monthly in Iraq ports i.e UMM Qasr berth/anchorage, Khor Al Zubair OPL/berth, Basra A/B anchorage and Basra OPL.”
The company is currently making efforts to position separate barges for LSFO requirements and also plans to continue offering normal RMG for scrubber fitted vessels.
Iraq is the second largest crude oil exporter in the middle east and attracts more than 80 VLCC/Suezmax/Aframaxes vessels every month for loading, it adds.
Increased political stability in the region Iraq economy has also been attracting shipping businesses at other ports of Um Qasr and Khor Al Zubair.
The above developments have resulted in Iraqi ports growing exponentially as a shipping hub over the years.
Sea Crown is currently offering a range of marine fuels which comply with international standards like ISO, MARPOL through SIRE / Oil Majors approved bunker-barges.
Currently on offer are RMG 380 cSt, RME 180 cSt & Gasoil (Normal Gas oil DMA and Low Sulfur Gasoil LSMGO DMA) meeting ISO-8217:2010 specifications.
