With recent bunker fuel prices hitting record highs combined with serious fuel contamination cases, bunker fuel represents one of the biggest costs and risks to ship managers. Add to this ever-increasing focus on carbon emissions where BDN quantity is an important factor, along with recent media reports of serious malpractice during bunker operations, it has become vital to ensure that measures are taken to ensure your vessel receives the correct quantity of fuel that has been ordered, and that the quality of the fuel is within specification and fit for purpose.
FOBAS offers a Bunker Quantity Survey (BQS) service which can help to navigate these issues. Please find attached a bulletin which provides further information in relation to this.
