Once tank dip/ullage is completed, the ROB of bunkers is calculated basis ullage/sounding of each tank corrected for the trim & list, gross observed volume (GOV).


  • We carry out Bunker Detective Survey to establish the actual bunker quantity onboard the vessel and comparing it with the vessel’s declared quantity.


  • Some times the bunkering company does not intend to supply a significant amount of fuel and include false information about the specific gravity of fuel oil into the bunker delivery note. Our surveyors are always instructed to check the specific gravity of fuel oil. 

  •  As an additional element of control the unnecessary disputes after completion of the bunkering operation at Chittagong, Mongla, Matarbari or any project areas, we always prefer to take the measurements on the barge is a part of the followed procedure.

  • Charterers usually prefer to have the presence of extra fuel onboard compared to the declared quantity in the engine logbook. Once appointed for charterer, we always try to protect their interest.


Once we are assigned for Chittagong or Mongla port for carrying our off-hire bunker or off hire bunker and condition survey, we always appreciate that Principals/ charterer will provide the following information. 

  • Name of owner
  • Name of charterer
  • Redelivery place
