Colombian bunker company Codis S.A. has informed Bunker Index that it has begun supplying 380cst and 180cst fuel to ships calling at the port of Cartagena.

The bunker and lubricants supplier, which had only been carrying out deliveries of distillates up until the end of April, has already made sales of 2000 metric tonnes of heavy fuel oil over the last two weeks according to Sales Manager German Perez.

Codis has been using its 1200mt capacity bunker barge FM Codis to make deliveries. The double-hulled vessel, built in 1979, is being used exclusively for the supply of 380cst and 180cst to customers in Cartagena. Pumping rates for heavy fuel oil from this barge are 150 metric tonnes per hour.

For deliveries of marine diesel oil, Codis uses two single-hulled barges Juanse and Calipso Codis, which are both also owned by the company. The vessels each have a total product storage capacity of 500 metric tonnes and a pumping rate of 80 metric tonnes per hour.

Perez told Bunker Index that Codis had achieved an impressive 35 percent increase in sales in 2007 compared to the previous year. Revenues for this year were already on course to match the sales growth achieved in 2007, according to Perez.

As well as supplying in Cartagena, Codis is able to deliver IFO 380, IFO 180 and marine diesel oil in the ports of Santa Marta and Barranquilla by road tank wagon. Pumping rates for IFO deliveries by truck are 150 metric tonnes per hour.

The company is also able to supply customers with marine lubricants on request.
