As a leading bunker supplier, we expanded our services about five years ago to be able to supply our clientele offshore via ship to ship supply. We have a strong working relationship and joint venture with a reputable international company with a specialized bunker and trading division and various tanker vessels operating along the West African coast.

Clients who request offshore STS bunkers include fishing vessels, diamond mining vessels, offshore drilling vessels (too large to enter port) and container vessels en route to a West African port.
