Singapore's MPA revokes bunker supplier licence of Inter-Pacific

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) has revoked the bunker supplier licence of Inter-Pacific Petroleum effective 9 December 2019 over the company’s involvement in bunkering malpractices.

The withdrawal of the licence means Inter-Pacific has ceased to operate as a bunker supplier in the port of Singapore.

This also follows MPA’s earlier revocation of Inter-Pacific’s bunker craft operator licence on 15 October 2019 due to bunkering malpractices relating to the use of mass flow meters (MFMs).

“Inter-Pacific had filed for judicial management at the High Court of the Republic of Singapore and a judicial manager has since been appointed. With the appointment of the judicial manager, Inter-Pacific has failed to meet the terms and conditions of the bunker supplier licence, leading to the revocation of the licence,” MPA said in a statement.

The Singapore port authority has taken an ironhanded approach on errant bunker suppliers as it reminds all bunker licensees to adhere strictly to the terms and conditions of their licences.
