FOBAS - Fuel Oil Bunkering Analysis and Advisory Service

Marine fuel represents one of the most significant operational costs for ship operators. Not only is marine fuel very costly but the impact of poor quality fuel could put the safety, operational and environmental performance of a ship at risk.

Regular fuel sampling, analysis and quality assessment can help the client determine that their fuel is within specified limits, satisfactory for safe use and unlikely to cause operational problems or damage to a ship's machinery.

FOBAS provides a comprehensive fuel testing programme to marine clients worldwide which is backed up by strategically located laboratories and technical fuel consultants with extensive engineering experience. The quality service of our laboratories combined with the experience of our consultants ensures rapid turnaround times of authoritative and detailed fuel quality advisory reports.

FOBAS also offers a comprehensive Bunker Quantity Survey Service (BQS) to its clients with access to surveyors, in many worldwide ports, who can attend throughout the bunkering operation. The attending inspector will check the quantities on board the barge or storage tank before and after transfer and check Chief Engineer's soundings of receiving vessel before and after transfer.
