The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) states it has cancelled the bunker supplier licences of Excel Petroleum Enterprise Pte Ltd and Lian Hoe Leong & Brothers Pte Ltd with effect from 15 January 2014 for contravening the terms and conditions of the bunkering licences.
Both companies were found to have breached Clause 3 of the terms and conditions of the Bunkering Licence (Bunker Supplier) by allowing other companies to use their Bunker Delivery Notes to supply bunkers.
MPA reminds all licensed bunker suppliers that under Clause 3 of the terms and conditions of the Bunkering Licence (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 Licence.
MPA adds that it will not hesitate to suspend or cancel the bunkering licence of any Bunker Supplier or Bunker Craft Operator that is found to have contravened the terms and conditions of its Licences.
