Thoresen Shipping Singapore withdraws damage claims against Minerva Bunkering

20 Feb 2020

Thoresen Shipping Singapore Pte Ltd, the dry bulk shipping arm of Thoresen Thai Agencies, has withdrawn a legal claim against Minerva Bunkering Pte Ltd at the High Court of the Republic of Singapore over vessel damages related to alleged off-spec marine fuel.

“Thoresen has withdrawn such claims, by filing a Notice of Discontinuance in Singapore,” a spokesperson from Mercuria Energy Trading SA, the parent company of Minerva Bunkering, told Manifold Times on Thursday (20 February).

“In addition, Thoresen has withdrawn its Swiss arbitration [against Minerva Bunkering at the Swiss Chambers’ Arbitration Institution].” 

The Singapore bunkering publication in late January reported the Thor Achiever encountering operational issues after receiving about 492 metric tonnes (mt) of VLSFO at Singapore port on or about 17 to 18 November 2019.
