ExxonMobil said it is launching its 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 a MFMS from July 1, 2019. ExxonMobil worked closely with the MPA during a trial that was concluded in October 2017 and is now in a position to launch its MFMS for MGO deliveries ahead of the deadline.

According to ExxonMobil, its MFMS not only logs data throughout the bunkering procedure, but can also reduce bunkering time by up to three hours compared with conventional tank dipping.

"Our mass flow metering systems have a proven track record for transparency, helping ensure that vessel operators receive reliable and consistent bunkering," said Luca Volta, Marine Fuels Venture Manager, ExxonMobil. "ExxonMobil continues to lead the industry in the application of mass flow metering, following on from our successful implementation for heavy fuel oil in Hong Kong and Singapore."

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