Fuel

Fuelling industry in the North Sea

Fuel

We are the largest shoreside supplier of Marine Gas Oil (MGO) to the UK offshore industry. The MGO is housed at our dedicated fuel terminals in Aberdeen, Peterhead and Great Yarmouth and is stored to ISO 8217:2017 Max 0.1% Sulphur & BS2869 specification.

We have unique agreements with key UK and European refineries providing a cost effective and reliable supply. We operate from strategically located and owned infrastructure and have a fleet of modern road tankers meaning we can bunker at more quaysides, across all our locations, than any other provider, ensuring stock is available when you need it and where you need it.

We have over 15,000 tonnes of MGO storage in Peterhead, delivered by pipeline to 10 of our 14 berths (other berths serviced by road tanker). In Aberdeen, we have 14,500 tonnes of MGO storage with ASCO owned pipeline supply to 14 quaysides within the harbour. In Great Yarmouth we have 4,700 tonnes of MGO storage and can supply to 6 quaysides within the harbour.

Annually distributing over 700,000 tonnes of MGO

Our client base is varied, servicing the marine and offshore market in the Northern North Sea and Southern North Sea areas. It ranges from major oil companies through to ship owners, charterers and traders providing MGO for propulsion and power generation.

We have strong working relationships with ports across the UK and although our road tankers are based in Aberdeen and Great Yarmouth - our fuels service spans the entire country.

We offer several different methods of pricing which are discussed and tailored to suit each individual requirement.

Lubricants

Lubricants are an essential product for ensuring safety and reliability across operations in the energy industry. We currently partner with OEMs in Peterhead and store lubricants in a multiplicity of pack types. We service both the Marine and Offshore markets and offer a UK wide delivery service which is fulfilled from our dedicated warehouse and tank storage facility, which provides both packed and bulk capability tailored to customer requirements.

Base Oils

Base oils are used by our clients in their drilling operations. We store base oil in specialist tanks across our quayside locations with the ability to supply different grades by road tank wagon directly to our customer base. Bulk volumes are recorded on our quayside management system, QMS which offers visibility to our clients by generating usage reports on demand.

Inland Sales and Throughput Contracts

We have a strategic partnership with a leading UK refiner to store middle distillates such as gas oil, kerosene and 10ppm diesel. Our predominate role is to dispense via bottom loading ex rack facilities to many authorised distributors who supply the inland market. We also supply business to business.

Storage Solutions

We have additional storage capabilities across our quayside locations in the UK where we can store other bulk products to the highest standards for our clients. We store MEG on behalf of our clients in Great Yarmouth and are currently exploring our capabilities to store other alternative fuels from LNG (Liquid Natural Gas), GTL based fuels and base oils.
