Sentek Marine & Trading has been ranked as Singapore's leading bunker supplier by sales volume in 2017, according to data released by the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA).

Sentek - a company that has featured in the top three since 2012 - rose one place to top the supplier list for the first time in its history, with PetroChina International jumping 10 places to second (after being ranked 12th as a new entrant in 2016), and Chemoil International dropping two places to third, having been the port's leading supplier for the previous two years.

Also making up the top five were Shell Eastern Trading, rising four places from eighth, and Equatorial Marine Fuel Management Services, up two to fifth.

The rest of the top 10 comprised ExxonMobil and BP - two companies that in previous years have been Singapore's top two bunker suppliers, and which both fell two places - to sixth and seventh respectively; Ocean Bunkering, jumping 23 places to eighth; Global Energy Trading, unchanged at ninth; and Total Marine Fuels, up seven to 10th.

In total, three companies managed to break into the top 10 in 2017 (PetroChina International, Ocean Bunkering Services and Total Marine Fuels) during a year that saw three leading suppliers - Universal Energy (third in 2016), Transocean (sixth in 2016) and Panoil Petroleum (10th in 2016) - have their licences cancelled by the MPA.

The supplier to rise the most up the list was Hong Lam Marine, up 37 places to 18th. Other companies to improve their ranking significantly were Ocean Bunkering Services, with its previously mentioned 23-place jump; Hin Leong Marine International, rising 19 places to 32nd; Sinanju Marine Services, up 15 places to 28th; Matrix Marine Fuels, up 14 to 26th; and Petrochina's improvement from 12th to 2nd.

In addition to Hong Lam Marine and Ocean Bunkering Services, Bomin Bunker Oil and Inter-Pacific Petroleum were the other two companies to improve their ranking and break into the top 20: Bomin rose six places to 15th and Inter-Pacific was up seven to 19th.

The biggest declines were recorded by Palmstone Marine Services, which fell 18 places to 41st, and Triton Bunkering Services, which dropped 11 places to 46th. They were the only two companies to fall more than six places.

The only new entrant last year was CNC Petroleum, which was ranked 52nd in the MPA's annual list.
