May 06, 2012

Fuel-oil shipments to Singapore rebounded from May, with 16 tankers carrying 3.38 million metric tons scheduled to arrive in Singapore from outside Asia in June, vessel-charter data compiled by Bloomberg show.

The tankers, including 10 very large crude carriers, have been booked to collect the fuel for ships and power generators from ports in Europe and the Caribbean, according to data from shipbrokers including Poten & Partners Inc. in New York. The cargo volume compares with 2.68 million tons reported for June arrival as of last week.

Nineteen vessels carrying 2.99 million tons will arrive in May at Singapore, Asia’s oil-trading hub and the region’s largest port for fuel-oil cargoes, Asia’s oil-trading hub and the region’s largest port for fuel-oil cargoes. That compares with 2.9 million booked as of last week, according to the data.

The volumes are below the 3.6 million tons in March and 4 million tons in February, the most since at least July.

The following is a summary of tankers reported as contracted to carry fuel oil to Singapore. Cargoes are in thousands of tons. Arrival time is calculated based on information on the e-ships.net website and assuming a total of four days for loading and unloading at ports. A VLCC can carry about 2 million barrels of oil. Charters are subject to cancelation.
