The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) has revoked the Bunker Supplier Licence of Inter-Pacific Petroleum Pte Ltd (“Inter-Pacific”). With effect from 9 December 2019, Inter-Pacific will cease to operate as a bunker supplier in the Port of Singapore.
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. This follows MPA’s earlier revocation of Inter-Pacific’s Bunker Craft Operator Licence on 15 October 2019 due to bunkering malpractices.
MPA reminds all bunker licensees to adhere strictly to the terms and conditions of their licences. MPA takes a serious view of contraventions of the licence terms and conditions, and will suspend or revoke the relevant licence(s) where necessary.
