Bunker supplier Inter-Pacific Petroleum will no longer be allowed to operate in the Port of Singapore after the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) revoked its bunker craft operator license.

As informed, the measure will take effect from October 15, 2019.

The newest move comes after MPA temporarily suspended Inter-Pacific’s license at the end of June 2019.

As part of MPA’s ongoing efforts to ensure the integrity of bunkering in Singapore, checks were conducted on Inter-Pacific earlier this year.

MPA’s checks and subsequent investigations revealed magnetic interferences affecting measurements of bunkers supplied in numerous mass flow meter readings across Inter-Pacific’s fleet of bunker tankers, the port authority said in a statement.

What is more, the company had failed to ensure that its employees, including its cargo officers, comply with the terms and conditions of its license, according to MPA.
