Dubai Fuel Bunkering Services

Whenever we pronounce the word ‘bunkering’, a typical concept always pops up in our heads. Either it will be a large ship of fuel supply or marine fuel supply. In the age of steam and sail, take us to the time when coals bunkers are used. The world’s merchant fleets and vessels mainly use residual fuel oil the overall bunker fuels. It is also appropriate if we say about the maximum number of large diesel engines used on land. But now the question is, what is residual fuel? In fuel bunkering services in Dubai, residual fuel oils are the extract products manufactured after all types of distillate or removal of the lighter fractions in refinery procedures.

Marine fuel supply

Through barges, pipelines, or boats, this bunker fuel is shipped from one place to another. Usually, one thing that can commonly be seen is that the commercial marine fuel supply is completely separate from the recreational marine fuels. In the UAE, shipping is considered a higher volume and an inexpensive inducement. It helps to deal with different refiners to manufacture customized marine fuels that are the most economical for their engines. They utilize fuels that incorporate less refining process and that is why it comes at a lower price than all other fuels. 

Sea Ships and to a large extent of land users must know that this fuel type depends on the following things-   Fuel price, design of the engine and used fuel system, bunker port’s availability, and sulfur content. 

Now, we will go through each vital aspect of fuel bunkering services one by one here. So stay tuned with us!

Marine fuel and bunker supply

We already know that two primary types of marine fuels exist- residual and distillate. However, many renowned bunker and marine fuel supply companies like Sea Sail Shipping also deliver the third type of fuel called ‘intermediate’ fuel is a mixture of the basic two fuels. From crude oil’s petroleum fractions the distillate fuel is naturally filtered and separated in a refinery through the distillation or boiling method. On the other hand, ‘residuum’ is a kind of hard fraction that you cannot boil. This is why it is sometimes pointed out as ‘petroleum pitch’ or ‘tar’. In offshore fuel & bunkering services in UAE, fuels that are used for marine engines and boilers in different ports like Sharjah, and Fujairah are divided into the following types. These fuel grades and fuel types have their widely used industry names-

  •     Distillate DMX, DMA, DMB, DMZ Gas Oil, or Marine Gas Oil
  •     Residual RMA-RML Fuel Oil or Residual Fuel Oil
  •     Intermediate IFO 180, IFO 380, Marine Diesel Fuel or Fuel Oil
