UK firm Geos Group has advised its customers to book their bunker deliveries in good time as the company it uses to transport marine gas oil (MGO) to vessels, Par Petroleum, is said to be currently experiencing high demand from non-marine customers.

Geos explained in a tweet on Wednesday that Par Petroleum's trucks are "very busy at the moment - delivering kerosene to homes & businesses who are feeling the cold".

Many parts of the UK have been affected by adverse weather conditions in recent days, which looks to have had a direct effect on local heating fuel demand.

As a result, Geos has asked its marine clients to "please book your #marine #fuel transport early".

Bunker Index reported earlier this month that Geos had taken over road tanker delivery operations of marine gas oil (MGO) at the port of Blyth, Northumberland, from US-headquartered energy company Phillips 66.

Geos owns and operates the MGO storage terminal in Blyth and manages ex-pipe bunkering operations there.

The UK supplier said in the second week of January that the handover of road tanker deliveries at Blyth from Phillips 66 had been "very straightforward" thanks to its "resources and expertise".

The increase in demand for Par Petroleum trucks will represent a challenge for Geos, but by informing its customers, the company will be looking to optimally manage its delivery schedules during the period.

In addition to Blyth, Geos also provides road transport delivery services from other UK ports, including Aberdeen and Great Yarmouth.
