MPA Cancels Coteam Petroleum Bunker License

April 1, 2014

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) cancelled the bunker supplier and bunker craft operator licenses that were issued to Coteam Petroleum Trading Pte Ltd with effect from April 1, 2014 as they contravened the terms and conditions of the bunkering licenses, GAC reported.

Coteam Petroleum was found to have breached Clause 3 of the terms and conditions of the Bunkering License (Bunker Supplier) by allowing other companies to use their Bunker Delivery Notes to supply bunkers. They were also found to have breached Clause 31 of the terms and conditions of the Bunkering License (Bunker Craft Operator) for delivering bunkers on behalf of an unlicensed company to customers of that company.

All licensed Bunker Suppliers are reminded that under Clause 3 of the terms and conditions of the Bunkering License (Bunker Supplier), bunker suppliers shall not transfer, assign, sublet, share, part with or otherwise dispose of any of their rights, duties, liabilities, obligations and privileges under the terms and conditions of the License. In addition, under Clause 31 of the terms and conditions of the Bunkering License (Bunker Craft Operator), bunker craft operators shall not make use of any bunker craft to deliver bunkers on behalf of any person, firm or company or which is not a bunker supplier licensed by MPA.

MPA said it will not hesitate to suspend or cancel the bunkering license of any Bunker Supplier or Bunker Craft Operator that is found to have contravened the terms and conditions of its Licenses.
