Minerva to supply West Africa with marine fuels

Minerva Bunkers will supplement its marine fuel trading business in West Africa by opening a full-service fuel supply operation in the region.

"We know this region very well and know what our customers need in this region – fast and accurate supply, high-quality products and being able to avoid unnecessary port calls and lengthy waits," Minerva Bunkers Physical Supply Business Development Manager Miguel Fernandez said. "With our own vessel and control over the supply chain, we are able to provide our customers with the highest quality fuels in the most efficient and cost effective way."

By March, the company will have two tankers plying the region's waters. The Sea Lion I, one of the company's current vessels, can pump up to 1,000 metric tons of crude per hour. Its sister vessel will have similar capacity.

"With our team's expertise in serving offshore markets worldwide, as well as an in depth knowledge of the local markets, we can deliver Minerva Bunkers trademark quality service where our customers need it," Fernandez said. "Offshore supply is time-critical and safety is of paramount importance, so it is important that our customers can be assured by the rigor and transparency that define our operations. This is exactly why we have set our own extremely high quality standards, which go over and above the industry requirements and guarantee reliability of supply."

Minerva will provide Marine Gas Oil, intermediate fuel oil and other marine fuels with viscosities ranging from 30 to 380 centistokes.

The company is owned by Mercuria Energy Trading, which has operations in more than 50 countries, making it one of the largest oil cargo enterprises in the world.
