Customs Today on 10th May reported that the Maritime and Port Authority (MPA) of Singapore has stripped marine fuel services provider Southernpec (Singapore) Pte Ltd of its licence to operate bunker barges that refuel ships in the port.  Investigations revealed it had engaged in bunkering malpractice, using a magnet to interfere with the mass flow meter (MFM) during a fuelling operation.  Southernpec in 2018 ranked as Singapore’s 30th-largest marine fuel supplier by volumes delivered out of 51 operators, according to the MPA.
