The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) has cancelled the licences of two bunkering service providers in Singapore's port with effect from Monday.
The licences of Golden Lights HS Bunkering, a bunker supplier, and Shing Li Shipping, a bunker craft operator, were cancelled after they were found to have contravened the terms and conditions of their bunkering licences.
Golden Lights HS Bunkering allowed another company to use its Bunker Delivery Note to supply bunkers to the customers of that company, and Shing Li Shipping delivered bunkers on behalf of an unlicensed company to customers of that company.
The two service providers will no longer be allowed to operate as a bunker supplier and a bunker craft operator in Singapore. MPA in a statement on Monday added that instances of malpractice in the bunkering industry may be reported through MPA's Marine Services Department at firstname.lastname@example.org
