Oil major ExxonMobil is introducing the use of its mass flow metering system (MFMS) for marine gas oil (MGO) bunkering at Singapore port from May 2018.
“Our mass flow metering systems have a proven track record for transparency, helping ensure that vessel operators receive reliable and consistent bunkering,” said Luca Volta, Marine Fuels Venture Manager, ExxonMobil.
The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) has mandated that all distillates must be delivered via a MFMS from 1 July 2019.
ExxonMobil says it worked closely with the MPA during a successful trial that was concluded in October 2017 and is now in a position to launch its MFMS for MGO deliveries ahead of the Singapore deadline.
The decision to launch this system ahead of Singapore’s deadline underlines ExxonMobil’s commitment to offering vessel operators the best possible service and value, it says.
The investment, along with MPA-accreditation for the technology, offers vessel operators additional peace of mind when bunkering ExxonMobil marine fuel in Singapore.
The system is designed to enhance the integrity, security and efficiency of fuel quantity measurement.
It provides transparency and traceability by logging data throughout the bunkering procedure. It can also reduce bunkering time by up to three hours compared with conventional tank dipping.
ExxonMobil started delivering heavy fuel oil (HFO) in Singapore via MFMS in 2012. Since then over 10 million tonnes have been bunkered using the system.
