On-Hire (Off-Hire) Bunker SURVEY
Panocean survey team is headed by master mariner and includes number of competent surveyors for carrying out an off-hire bunker survey at Chattogram and Mongla. On-Hire (Off-Hire) Bunker Survey is carried out onboard the vessel at the time of On or Off-Hire. In order to determine the fuel on board at the time of on or off-hire, the sounding is taken of all Bunker Fuel tanks including Heavy Fuel & Marine Diesel Oil. In most of the cases, charterer supply bunker at vessel during the charter period. The amount of fuel onboard observed during the time of the survey is adjusted for consumption and/or fuel oil received. Jointly signed (with vessel’s Chief Engr. and Master) bunker report is provided to the vessel at the time of the survey.
KEYNOTES & PROCEDURES
- 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 on board compared to the declared quantity in the engine log book. Once appointed for charterer, we always try to protect their interest.
