Singapore-based bunker trading firm Synergy Asia Bunkering (SAB) has expanded operations to the Middle East with the start of its Dubai office.
“The Dubai office was started on 15 July as a base for us to launch regional operations into the Middle East,” Jeremy Long, Trading Manager at SAB, told Manifold Times.
“We are expanding to the region due to forecasted growth and trading opportunities.”
Long, who started working within the bunkering industry since 2005, said SAB will be operating with a “bespoke concept” at Dubai; it will also focus on slowly developing the Middle East business within the first two years.
“Our key area of focus in Dubai will be the core business of bunker trading. Additionally, we will be exploring opportunities in physical barge and truck deliveries, and physical cargo trading to South East Asia in time to come,” he states.
Steven Low, Director of SAB, meanwhile shares the company’s Vietnam-specialised bunker supply business has been “already ongoing and established”.
“We are currently preparing for IMO 2020 and we are looking to start supply of 0.5% sulphur of marine fuels from the third quarter of this year with avails from Petrolimex,” said Low.
“We do not expect much of an issue with avails of IMO 2020 compliant fuels at Vietnam.”
