ExxonMobil announced on Monday that it is launching a mass flow metering (MFM) system for marine gas oil (MGO) in Singapore, with the first barge deliveries set to start in May 2018.

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) has mandated that all distillates must be delivered via a MFM system from July 1, 2019.

ExxonMobil worked closely with the MPA during the previously mentioned trial that was concluded in October 2017 and says it is now in a position to launch its MFM system for MGO deliveries ahead of the Singapore deadline.

ExxonMobil's MFM technology is designed to enhance the integrity, security and efficiency of fuel quantity measurement, providing transparency and traceability by logging data throughout the bunkering procedure, and reducing bunkering time by up to three hours compared with conventional tank dipping.

"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."

"The decision to launch this system ahead of Singapore's deadline underlines ExxonMobil's commitment to offering vessel operators the best possible service and value. The investment, along with MPA-accreditation for the technology, offers vessel operators additional peace of mind when bunkering ExxonMobil marine fuel in Singapore," ExxonMobil added.

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