In 2015, our subsidiary, Selatan Bunker (M) Sdn Bhd, commenced oil trading and bunkering via a collaboration agreement with Tumpuan Megah Development Sdn Bhd. In 2016, Selatan Bunker (M) Sdn Bhd obtained the Petroleum Development Act License from Malaysia’s Ministry of Domestic Trade, Cooperative and Consumerism.
Bunkering services refers to the provision of marine fuels to ships, as well as other ocean faring vessels, such as oil tankers, container vessels, cargo vessels, cruise ships and ferries, as well as vessels utilised in the upstream oil and gas industry such as offshore support vessels, submersible and semisubmersible rigs and FPSO vessels. Bunkering can be broadly categorised into onshore bunkering and offshore bunkering, whereby marine fuel is typically pumped into vessels by refuelling vessels barges, product tankers or another ship in harbours, close to shore, or in open waters. Onshore bunkering involves the transfer of marine fuels on a shore-to-ship basis from an onshore facility, whereas offshore bunkering involves the transfer of marine fuels on a ship-to-ship basis.
Bunkering is essentially a marine logistics business, where industry growth is dependent on the volume of marine fuels distributed to end-users, which include amongst others, oil and gas vessels, marine cargo and bulk transporters, military and navy vessels. Thus, growth in global trade and marine transportation, increased activities in the upstream oil and gas industry, and supporting government policies will positively impact the bunkering services industry, benefiting industry players that offer bunkering services.
We currently own two vessels, namely Straits I and Sturgeon. We will continue to expand our fleet to fulfil business requirements and to best support customer needs.
Selatan Bunker (M) Sdn Bhd principally operates from the Pasir Gudang Port and Tanjung Pelepas Port.
