Selatan Bunker (M) Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Malaysia-listed bunkering firm Straits Inter Logistics (SIL), on 30 April 2019 ended a ship management agreement (SMA) with Singapore maritime firm Skips Marine Services Pte Ltd, it said.
The termination of the contract was due to SIL’s incorporation of subsidiary Straits Marine Services Pte Ltd which provides its own internal ship management services.
“The Board of Directors of Straits, having considered all aspects of the termination of the said SMA, is of the opinion that the termination is made in the best interest of the Company and its Subsidiaries,” said a SIL statement.
SIL currently owns and operates nine Malaysia-flagged bunkering vessels ranging from 530 to 4,700 dwt and delivers low sulphur marine gas oil (LSMGO) to nine locations in Malaysia.
The company also started Straits Marine Fuels & Energy Sdn Bhd (SMF) in early March as an effort to move into fuel oil bunkering at Johor in Malaysia; it allegedly acquired two additional bunker tankers for the operation.
SIL ended financial year 2018 with a 61% increase in net profit.
