Kenya: Supplier's first IFO cargo 'virtually sold out'

25 Aug 2011 13:01 GMT

Bunker firm confirms bookings in the run up to its first week supplying 180-centistoke fuel.



Kenya-based bunker supplier Fossil Fuels Ltd. has revealed today that its first cargo of 180-centistoke (cst), for sale in the Mombasa marine fuels market, has already virtually sold out.

Speaking to Bunker Index, bunker sales manager Johana Mwangome confirmed that the company is scheduled to commence physical deliveries of intermediate fuel oil from next Wednesday, 31st August, adding that six bookings have already been arranged for the first day and that approximately 95 percent of its 1,100-cubic metre cargo has already been sold.

Fossil Fuels Ltd. had intended to begin supplying during the third week of August, however the date had to be put back due to scarcity of fuel oil in the local market, the company said.

Up until now, Fossil Fuels Ltd. has specialized in supplying only MGO to clients calling at Mombasa - an operation which was launched in January 2010.

The company will next week introduce two double-hulled vessels into the market - the Mussa-K and the Alpha Kirawira - and will be in a position to target a larger number of ships in the area by being able to meet the needs of operators requiring both intermediate fuel oil and distillates.

According to Fossil Fuels Ltd., the company's strategy will be to supply both in port and off port limits with the Mussa-K operating inside the port of Mombasa and the larger Alpha Kirawira carrying out deliveries to clients offshore.

The Mussa-K is a tanker barge with a total storage capacity of 1200 cubic metres (cbm) and a pumping rate of 2 x 250 cbm per hour. The vessel is capable of storing two different grades of fuel, but the company intends to use it for deliveries of 180-cst only.

The tanker barge Alpha Kirawira has a storage capacity of 1500 cbm and a pumping rate of 2 x 150 cbm per hour. The vessel has onboard blending capabilities and will be used to deliver both 180-cst and MGO to customers.
