Singapore Court Fines Unlicensed Bunker Supplier

A court in Singapore has fined a bunker supplier after it pleaded guilty to providing bunker services at the Port of Singapore without a proper licence, the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) reports.

JL Petroleum Pte Ltd pleaded guilty in court on August 18 to supplying bunkers without a valid licence issued by MPA.

MPA had brought charges against JL Petroleum for supplying bunkers on 14 occasions between June 2 and June 25, 2013. In addition, JL Petroleum had also used the Bunker Delivery Notes belonging to Excel Petroleum Enterprise Pte Ltd for the deliveries, MPA says.

MPA had cancelled Excel Petroleum Enterprise’s bunker supplier licence on January 15, 2014 for the company’s involvement in this case, as its actions had breached the terms and conditions of the licence.

All bunker suppliers operating in the Port of Singapore must be licensed by MPA, and all licensees must adhere strictly to the terms and conditions of the licence.
