12 Jan 2017 09:29 GMT
|Sentek and Universal Energy rise up the list to make top three.|
| Chemoil International has been ranked as Singapore's leading bunker supplier by sales volume for the second year in a row in 2016, according to data released by the Maritime and Port Authority (MPA). |
Sentek Marine & Trading - a company that has featured in the top three since 2012 - rose one place to second, whilst Universal Energy - a supplier that has been in the top 10 since 2013 but never before broken into the top three - rose four places to third.
Also making up the top five were oil majors ExxonMobil and BP - two companies that in previous years have been Singapore's top two bunker suppliers. ExxonMobil rose one place to fourth, thus securing a place in the top five for the second year in a row, having been ranked 6th, 11th and 8th between 2012 and 2014. BP, Singapore's top supplier for 12 consecutive years between and 2003 and 2014, recorded the biggest drop for last year's top 10 suppliers, falling three places to fifth.
Transocean Oil and Shell Eastern Trading both fell two places to sixth and eighth respectively; Equatorial Marine Fuel Management Services rose one place to eighth; and both Global Energy Trading and Panoil Petroleum were unchanged at 9th and 10th. Significantly, no companies rose up the list to break into the top 10 in 2016.
The new entrant to make the biggest impact in 2016 was PetroChina International, which secured 12th position in its first year as a supplier in Singapore. PetroChina-owned Singapore Petroleum (SPC), meanwhile, was no longer listed, having been ranked as the 11th-biggest supplier in 2015.
Other new entrants Maersk Oil Trading Singapore and Harley Marine Asia were ranked 36th and 47th respectively.
Suppliers to rise significantly up the list were Palmstone Marine Services (up 15 places to 23rd), Sinanju Marine Services (up 12 to 43rd), Pegasus Maritime (up 9 to 44th), Costank (up 7 to 14th) and Sirius Marine (up 7 to 29th).
In addition to Costank, Brightoil Petroleum and Aegean Bunkering also improved their ranking to break into the top 20: Brightoil jumped five places to 18th and Aegean was up two to 20th.
The biggest declines were recorded by Uni Petroleum, which fell 16 places to 45th, and Palmstone Tankers & Trading, which dropped eight places to 48th.
