Unioil Supply dragged into Dan-Bunkering sanctions allegations

03 May 2019

Denmark’s Defense Minister Claus Hjort Frederiksen (pictured above) has been asked by Naser Khader, a member of the Danish Parliament, to determine if Dan-Bunkering is involved in European Union (EU) sanctioned activities over the Syrian war, according to Danish media DR.

Unioil Supply, a sister firm of Dan-Bunkering and the largest supplier of fuel to Denmark’s military, and cannot be associated with the country’s military if allegations are true, says Khader.

Dan-Bunkering on Wednesday (1 May) issued to Manifold Times a statement stating it has not violated EU’s sanctions against Syria.

Danish news agency DR on 28 April reported Middelfart-based international bunker trading firm Dan-Bunkering allegedly being involved in delivering jet fuel to Russian fighter aircraft during the Syria war.

In summary, DR claimed Dan-Bunkering delivered jet fuel to Syria from January 2016 to May 2017; a minimum of DKK 104 million (US $1.5. million) was transacted through at least six deliveries totalling 30,000 metric tonnes (mt).
