Black Sea supplier PMG Holding reports that it has been carrying out bunker deliveries to US Navy ships during the 18th edition of the Sea Breeze multinational military exercise, which is taking place between July 9 and July 21.

The company told Bunker Index that it has been supplying "large quantities" of marine gas oil (MGO) to US Navy vessels berthed in Odessa, Ukraine, with deliveries carried out by truck using specially designed connectors to enable much faster pumping rates.

"Given the large volume of bunkers which needed to be supplied as well as the time pressure due to the schedule of the US Navy, special custom-made connectors needed to be designed and manufactured, which allowed us to triple our pumping rate and deliver simultaneously from several trucks, ensuring a smooth and timely bunkering process," PMG explained.

Sea Breeze is an annual military training exercise which is designed to enhance interoperability among participating nations and strengthen regional security. This year, representatives of 19 countries and more than 2,000 soldiers are taking part, including 30 ships and boats, and a Turkish submarine.

PMG explained that whilst key Ukrainian Black Sea ports are clustered around the same harbour area and effectively share anchorage, "training has been carefully planned to ensure no disruption to normal port operations and there will be no effect on the bunkering schedule at the anchorage".

"Both of our bunker barges continue to successfully deliver bunkers with no disruptions," 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.

The company is able to arrange truck deliveries of 10 ppm ultra-low-sulphur diesel (ULSD) at all key Ukrainian Black Sea ports; it also recently launched an OPL (off port limits) Ukraine operation - commencing with the supply of RMG 380 product at the start of November and the addition of RME 180 and 0.1 percent MGO deliveries later that month.

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

In April, the supplier extended its capacity with the addition of a 1,634-dwt delivery vessel for the supply of low-sulphur MGO.

The supply operation is being managed by the company's trading team in London. PMG's contact details have been provided below and are also accessible via the Bunker Index directory.
