Glencore Singapore has been banned from selling bunkers for two months for its part in the sale of contaminated bunkers in the city-state.

The Maritime & Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) said it issued the ban because Glencore had continued to sell the fuel despite knowing of the contamination.

“Glencore contravened the terms and conditions of its bunkering licence (bunker supplier) in failing to ensure that no bunkers supplied by it were contaminated,” the MPA said.
