Danish bunker company Monjasa announced the opening of its first office in Luanda, Angola, to support the West Africa oil and shipping activities.

Monjasa started supplying bunkers across West Africa in 2009 and since then, it has delivered a total of 10.6 million tonnes of fuel products across the region from the Gulf of Guinea to Namibia.

"Monjasa is currently enabling the IMO 2020 transition by making new low-sulfur marine fuel available across the region. Today, Monjasa is the leading supplier in West Africa measured on volume and a fleet of 10 tankers deployed in the region," said a press release.

"The West Africa bunker market has developed very positively over the past 10-15 years and today matches bunker destinations like Las Palmas or South Africa. As an example, we are currently making IMO 2020 compliant fuel timely available across the region and we have just completed the first supplies in the Gulf of Guinea," says Group CEO, Anders Østergaard.

"In Angola, local representation is a key enabler for further developing our services, and now we get to show our commitment in Luanda and emphasise personal relations even further. We will continue to invest in West Africa for the benefit of our partners, the local communities and Monjasa," Østergaard added.

To support the new office location, the Monjasa owned 5,815-dwt tanker, African Chaser (to be renamed Monjasa Chaser), is now deployed as fixed tanker in Angolan territorial waters.
