The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) has revoked the bunker craft operator licence of Southernpec (Singapore), with effect from 08 May 2019. Southernpec will no longer be allowed to operate as a bunker craft operator in the Port of Singapore.

Investigations by MPA revealed that Southernpec had engaged in a bunker malpractice, involving the use of a magnet to interfere with the mass flow meter on board a tanker during a bunkering operation, which constituted a breach of the terms and conditions of its bunker craft operator licence.

Southernpec had also failed to inform MPA of the appointment of cargo officers to work on its bunker craft.

MPA said that it is separately investigating Southernpec for possible breaches of the terms and conditions of its bunker supplier licence.

MPA takes a serious view of any contraventions of licence terms and conditions, and will suspend or revoke the relevant licences where necessary. MPA reminds all bunker licensees to adhere strictly to the terms and conditions of their licences.
