3 Modes of Bunkering

#1

OffShore Anchorage

Your vessel can receive bunkers via barge, while drifting or at the anchorage area. This method is the most common an ideal if you want to keep costs down. 

Bunkering at the anchorage takes place close to shore, just outside of the harbour entrance. The barge will meet your vessel with the exact specification and quantity of fuel required.

Benefits of Bunkering Offshore/Anchorage;

• Avoid paying excessive port charges
• Avoid paying towage charges

This option involves taking on bunkers at a berth located in the Freeport harbor.

Benefits of bunkering at Freeport harbor berth;

• The berth provides protection for your vessel during periods of inclement weather when offshore operations may be limited or prohibited.
• Easy crew and personnel movement on and off the vessel.
• Other services such as inspections and vessel spares deliveries can be performed more cost effectively.

#2

Harbor Berth

#3

BORCO Berths

This method is common for tankers conducting cargo operations at Borco’s offshore jetties.

Benefits of Bunkering at Borco Berths;

• Save time by loading or unloading your cargo concurrent with fueling operations
• Fast, efficient bunkering to minimize waiting time.
