Bunkering resumed on Thursday morning at the South African ports of Durban and Richards Bay, with bunker suppliers working through the backlog of ships waiting to be berthed.

A local source told Bunker Index that bunkering had restarted at both east coast ports at around 7 a.m. today after they had been closed on Tuesday due to adverse weather conditions, with the area suffering gale-force winds, heavy rain and localised floods.

By early afternoon local time on Thursday, Richards Bay had 39 ships at anchorage, with congestion and delays not being helped by the fact that there were "a couple of berths damaged", Bunker Index was told.

A replenishment cargo of marine fuel product is due to arrive in Richards Bay on October 18.

In Durban, meanwhile, Bunker Index was informed that there was a backlog of 33 ships on Thursday afternoon local time.

Severe storms wreaked havoc at the port this week, unberthing ships and blowing containers into the water.
