Sol Group, a supplier of petroleum products and energy services in the Caribbean, recently said it has added offshore bunkering services at the Americas via the Panda PG vessel to its distribution late last year.
The additional fuelling service, which began in November 2018, provides vessels off the shores of Trinidad and Grenada with marine fuel.
This new addition further bolsters the regional fuel giant’s current marine fuel distribution system, which includes an ex-barge operation in Nassau Bahamas, ex-pipe in Barbados, Suriname, Guyana, Bermuda, Grand Cayman, and via truck in Saint Lucia, Grenada, Tortola, Dominican Republic, Martinique, Guadeloupe and French Guiana.
“Sol adheres to the strictest international standards and will be a premier provider of IMO2020 compliant fuels at multiple ports in the region,” said Kirk King, Sol Group Bunkering Manager.
“We continue to maintain our excellent record of reliability and quality, and plans are on stream to expand our OPL offer to offshore Guyana/Suriname.
“We are always looking for additional ways to support our communities and meet our customer needs; we are able to complement our fuels offer with lubricants at most of our locations, and the new expanded lines are designed to support the developing oil and gas industry in the two territories.”
