Total Marine Fuels Global Solutions [TMFGS) said on Monday (3 February) it is now 6th out of 45 in the latest Singapore bunker suppliers ranking for 2019, reflecting on the global energy provider’s commitment to Asia.
This is based on the latest figures released by The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA), where TMFGS previously ranked 17th in 2016 and 10th in 2017.
Jérôme Leprince-Ringuet, Managing Director of TMFGS, said: “We would like to express our appreciation to the Singapore MPA, and our partners across the supply chain, for their strong support behind these latest results.
“Singapore is the world’s largest bunkering port, and we are pleased to be able to show that we are establishing a trustworthy and increasing role in championing the development of Singapore’s bunkering system. Our commitment is to offer all our customers the best available solutions to significantly reduce the environmental footprint of maritime transport.”
TMFGS recently signed a ten year fully-termed agreement with Pavilion Energy Singapore late last year to jointly develop an LNG bunker supply chain in the port of Singapore.
This agreement follows the Heads of Agreement inked by the two companies in June 2018. The cooperation includes the shared long-term use of the 12,000-m³ GTT Mark III Flex membrane LNG bunker vessel (LNGBV) new build that will allow each party to supply LNG bunker to its respective customers.
