Following the recent mandate from The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) ExxonMobil is launching a Mass Flow Metering System (MFMS) for marine gas oil in Singapore which should help reduce bunkering times.

The first barge deliveries will begin in in May 2018 ahead of the mandate deadline. The launch follows the successful trials ahead of Singapore’s deadline for mass flow metering system deliveries for all distillate fuels.

“Our mass flow metering systems have a proven track record for transparency, helping ensure that vessel operators receive reliable and consistent bunkering,” said Luca Volta, Marine Fuels Venture Manager, ExxonMobil.

“ExxonMobil continues to lead the industry in the application of mass flow metering, following on from our successful implementation for heavy fuel oil in Hong Kong and Singapore.”

Distillate delivery

The MPA has mandated that all distillates must be delivered via a MFMS from 1 July 2019.

ExxonMobil worked closely with the MPA during a successful trial that was concluded in October 2017 meaning it is now in a position to launch its MFMS for MGO deliveries ahead of the Singapore deadline.

ExxonMobil’s MFMS is designed to enhance the integrity, security and efficiency of fuel quantity measurement. It provides transparency and traceability by logging data throughout the bunkering procedure. It can also reduce bunkering time by up to three hours compared with conventional tank dipping.

ExxonMobil started delivering heavy fuel oil (HFO) in Singapore via MFMS in 2012. Since then over 10 million tonnes have been bunkered using the system.
