Singapore: Southernpec bunker supplier licence revoked by MPA

29 May 2019

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) on Thursday (29 May) revoked the bunker supplier licence of Southernpec (Singapore) Pte Ltd (Southernpec) with immediate effect.

Southernpec will cease to operate as a bunker supplier in the Port of Singapore.

“During a recent enforcement check, MPA found that Southernpec had failed to ensure that its employees comply with the terms and conditions of their licence.

“Its employees engaged in bunker malpractices, which include the use of magnets to interfere with the mass flow meter during bunkering operations.

“Its cargo officers also did not record the information in the bunkering documents accurately, which breached the terms and conditions of its bunker supplier licence.”

MPA on 8 May revoked the bunker craft operator licence of Southernpec.

“MPA reminds all bunker licensees to adhere strictly to the terms and conditions of their licences. MPA will take firm action against any licensee who has acted in contravention of its licence(s), including the suspension or revocation of licence(s),” it states.
