DNVPS Bunker Alerts

DNV Petroleum Services (DNVPS) specialises in marine fuel management and is the market leader for contracted fuel quality testing services. DNVPS maintains fuel testing laboratories in Singapore, Rotterdam, Oslo, Houston and Fujairah and is also a major provider of bunker quantity surveys. Additionally, DNVPS offers Total Fuel Management advisory services catering to the needs of both shore management and ships.

DNVPS also publishes regular Bunker Alerts which are based entirely on the company’s analysis of fuel samples. Bunker Alerts are not intended to be an evaluation of overall bunker quality in the ports or areas concerned. However, they may aid the decision-making process when bunkers are required and may forewarn vessels about possible problems affecting bunkers already supplied.

The circulation of Bunker Alerts is generally limited to DNVPS’ own clients. However, DNVPS has kindly allowed the West of England to make such information available to Members and other approved users of the Club’s website 7 days after they have been issued on a strictly private and confidential basis. Therefore, in accordance with the statement printed at the bottom of each DNVPS Bunker Alert, the details should not be circulated to other parties or reproduced elsewhere.

To access the information, open the Club’s website, click on the Loss Prevention tab and then click on DNVPS Bunker Alerts. To view a DNVPS Bunker Alert, simply click on the title. Please note that the links will only work if you are logged in as a registered user and have been granted permission to access information restricted to Members and other parties who have a direct relationship with the Club. New applications may be made via the Registration Page.
