Euronav’s agreement to base an ULCC at anchorage in Malaysia’s Kuala Linggi International Port (KLIP) has brought the port’s dream of offering bunkering to fruition.

Euronav chief operating officer Alex Staring, speaking to TradeWinds in Kuala Lumpur last week, noted that his company’s 441,585-dwt Oceania (built 2003) had already supplied 20,000 tonnes of fuel to 15 vessels since dropping anchor at KLIP the month before.
