Malaysian bunker supplier Tumpuan Megah Development Sdn Bhd (TMD) has added bunker tanker Cavalla to its local fleet in December.
The 662 deadweight tonne (DWT) bunkering vessel will be supplying low sulphur marine gas oil (MGO) at various seaports in Malaysia, a spokesman of TMD told Manifold Times.
‘The decision to charter and operate Cavalla was made due to an increased demand for MGO within Malaysian waters,’ he explains.
‘Malaysia is the third-largest exporter of liquefied natural gas in the world, and the second-largest oil and natural gas producer in Southeast Asia.
‘To date, oil majors continue to make new oil and natural gas discoveries in regional deepwater offshore areas such as the Sarawak and Sabah basins.’
Including Cavalla, TMD now operates seven licensed bunkering vessels ranging from 500 to 4,700 DWT.
The Cavalla was formerly known as Everton; previously a SB licenced bunker tanker operated by Transocean at Singapore.
