Marine gas oil with off-spec flash point detected in Singapore

FOBAS-tested marine gasoil samples with flash points falling below the minimum set out by the SOLAS convention have been found in Singapore, the world's top bunkering hub. Low flash point fuels are commonly seen as presenting higher fire hazard risks to vessels

Many suppliers are blending fuels to achieve the required sulphur levels post-IMO 2020, with operators filling their tanks with such fuel run at risk of being forced to de-bunker by Port State Control inspectors or denied entry to port
