ExxonMobil is launching a mass flow metering system (MFMS) for marine gas oil (MGO) in Singapore, with the first barge deliveries set to start in May 2018.

 The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) has mandated that all distillates must be delivered via an MFMS from 1 July 2019.

 ExxonMobil worked closely with the MPA during a successful trial that was concluded in October 2017 and is now in a position to launch its MFMS for MGO deliveries ahead of the Singapore deadline.

 ExxonMobil’s MFMS not only provides transparency and traceability by logging data throughout the bunkering procedure, it can also reduce bunkering time by up to three hours compared with conventional tank dipping.

 The decision to launch this system ahead of the deadline underlines ExxonMobil’s commitment to offering vessel operators the best possible service and value.

 ExxonMobil started delivering heavy fuel oil (HFO) in Singapore via an MFMS in 2012. Since then over 10 million tonnes have been bunkered using the system.
