The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) has cancelled G-Fuel Pte Ltd’s bunker supplier licence with effect from 15 December 2012, the government said in a release on its website. The cancellation of the licence follows G-Fuel Pte Ltd contravening the terms and conditions of the bunkering licence.
The company was found to have breached Clause 3 of the terms and conditions of the Bunkering Licence (Bunker Supplier) by allowing another company to use G-Fuel’s Bunker Delivery Notes to supply bunkers to the customers of that company.
With the cancellation of its bunker supplier licence, G-Fuel Pte Ltd will no longer be allowed to operate as a bunker supplier in the Port of Singapore. All bunker suppliers operating in the Port of Singapore are required to be licensed by MPA.
“All licensed bunker suppliers are required to adhere strictly to the terms and conditions of the bunkering licence and the bunker supplier’s licence is not transferable under the terms and conditions. MPA does not condone such acts and we will not hesitate to suspend or cancel the bunkering licence of any bunker supplier found to have contravened any of the terms and conditions of the bunkering licence,” said Capt M Segar, MPA’s assistant chief executive (Operations).
