In this article we provide news on the new marine bunkering facility which is to be opened by Certas Energy on the River Thames in London.
A new bunkering facility supplying marine gas oil (MGO) has now opened on the Thames, operated by the marine division of Certas Energy. One of the largest distributors of marine fuel and lubricants in the UK, Certas Energy has expanded its portfolio to offer this refuelling facility, strategically placed to provide complete convenience for customers needing marine fuel.
The Thames facility stores distillate marine fuel (DMA grade MGO with less than 0.1% sulphur). The bunkering facility can accommodate smaller vessels such as bunker barges, through to large vessels with fuel being delivered via truck or ex-pipe.
Gary Byers, General Manager for Certas Energy Marine, comments, “The Thames location is a tactical addition to our marine fuel offering, enhancing our storage and supply portfolio. This expansion is in-line with our growth plans in the marine sector and helps us to deliver convenient, cost effective services for our customers. We have a team of dedicated marine fuel experts who understand the bunkering needs of our marine customers; this, coupled with our commitment to provide the best solution for our customers, makes us stand out from alternative distributors. With depots near every major British port, Certas Energy marine fuel customers can take advantage of our extensive and reliable delivery network, capable of covering all bunkering needs.”
Varun Chhabria, Head of Marine and Risk at Certas Energy, said “Certas Energy continuously monitor the whole of the market to ensure that we keep up to date. Currently bullish positioning is stretched, price momentum is fading and the forecasting fundamentals for the following months do suggest some peaks. With so many moving parts and with no surprise that OPEC has stepped back into market management mode, it has steered in a new era of growth within specific product lines for the oil industry. We at Certas Energy see this as an opportunity for growth within our core product range, thereby maximising our value offering to our existing and even new customers. Strategic positioning, coupled with our added value proposition is our major USP and also a unique attribute which makes us the first choice of supply”.
