The following story was first reported by Singapore bunker publication Manifold Times on 27 May, 3.30pm local time.
Singapore bunkering firm Sea Hub Energy Pte Ltd has left the bunker craft operator list of the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA), learns Manifold Times.
The latest revision of the MPA bunker craft operator list on 15 May did not include Sea Hub Energy; whereas the company was inside the similar document in an earlier version accurate on 14 March.
Manifold Times on late March reported the Singapore-registered Sea Tanker II (IMO 9664483), a bunkering tanker believed to be commercially managed by Singapore-based Sea Hub Energy Pte Ltd and owned by Sea Hub Tankers Pte Ltd, being added to the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) sanctions list.
Specifically, the 3,592 dwt Sea Tanker II was added to the list: ‘Vessels That Are Believed To Have Engaged In Ship-To-Ship Transfers with North Korean Tankers’.
Sea Hub Energy is still registered as a ‘live’ company under the Singapore Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA) registry.
The official website of Sea Hub Energy “http://seahubenergy.com/” is now unavailable.
