Veritas Petroleum Services (VPS) has issued a bunker alert for the port of Singapore relating to the supply of low flash point fuels.

It is VPS's third alert for low flash point fuels (including one update) at the Asian bunkering hub since the start of the year.

So far in 2018, three VPS alerts have been issued worldwide for low flash point fuels - all of them in Singapore.

In 2017, 12 global flash point alerts were announced overall - 11 for distillates and only one for residual fuels, with six in Europe and the other half in the Americas.

It means the three alerts in 2018 for Singapore alone surpass the one global flash point alert for fuels last year.

Especially prevalent this year has been the number of low flash point distillate alerts: 11, with warnings for Bilbao, Corpus Christi, Le Havre, Miami (2), New York, Philadelphia (3), Skaw and Tallinn.

The figure is already on a par with the 11 bunker alerts in 2017 - despite the fact that there are still more than six months of the year left to go.

In addition to the three low flash point fuel alerts for Singapore this year, VPS has also previously issued a warning regarding high abrasive fuels at the port.

The only other VPS bunker alert this year in Asia was for another high abrasive fuels issue in Kaohsiung, Taiwan.
