Black Sea bunker supplier PMG Holding has told Bunker Index that its new OPL (off port limits) bunker supply operation is in full swing following its recent launch in November.

PMG's OPL Ukraine service commenced with the supply of RMG 380 product to clients at the start of November, which was then extended with the addition of RME 180 and 0.1 percent marine gas oil (MGO) deliveries on November 22.

PMG's dedicated bunker barge, the 5,215-deadweight-tonne (dwt) Malburg, is able to store up to 5,000 metric tonnes of product and has a pumping rate of 380 tonnes per hour for fuel oil and approximately 150 cubic metres (cbm) per hour for distillates.

Commenting on its barge operation, PMG said: "Our new bunker supply location is perfect for vessels calling at all the Ukrainian ports (including Odessa, Yuzhny, Kherson, Chernomorsk (Ilyichevsk), Nikolayev, Oktyabskiy, Dneprobugskiy and others). For particular quantities, our tanker can supply anywhere OPL in the Black Sea."

"The new service is great for offering solutions in areas with scarce or no supply, such as Ukraine or OPL areas in the region. The prices are competitive, with the customer benefitting from no additional agent fees, no customs formalities or draft/GRT restrictions. The service is made with our promise of quality, which is ensured throughout the delivery process by recognized independent surveyors. All of our products meet all the regulations set by ISO 8217, MARPOL, IMO and local regulatory bodies," the company added.

Established 15 years ago, PMG specializes in the physical supply of marine fuel in the Black Sea and is an exporter of oil products from the Far East.

In addition to supplying OPL in the Black Sea, PMG can also arrange truck deliveries of MGO (10 ppm) at all Ukrainian ports where berthing is accessible. The minimum delivery quantity is 25 cbm, whilst the maximum amount that the company can deliver is 100-150 metric tonnes per day.

The supply operation is being managed by the company's new trading team in London, and is supported by staff in Cyprus. Contact details have been provided below.
