Singapore: MPA publishes IMO 2020 compliant fuels availability list

10 Apr 2019

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) recently published a ‘List of Licensed Bunker Suppliers Providing Compliant Fuels In Singapore’.

The list details the readiness of all 49 accredited Singapore bunker suppliers in offering IMO 2020 compliant fuel with sulphur content of less than 0.50; and the specific providers of certain fuel products.

Marine fuel grades covered are MGO (<0.50%); LSFO (<0.50%); ULSFO (<0.10%); and HSFO (<0.50%).

MPA has reportedly stated to shipping companies that masters and ship operators will jailed if caught cheating on using IMO 2020 non-compliant fuels in Singapore waters.

Offenders face up to two years in jail, or a SG $10,000 fine, or both.

The global sulphur cap of marine fuel is scheduled to drop from 3.5% to 0.5% from 2020 onwards.
