The MSF is delighted to announce the new Delivering Quality Bulk Marine Gasoil to Offshore Installations Guidelines.

This document is applicable to vessels carrying Marine Gasoil as cargo to offshore installations operating in the United Kingdom Continental Shelf (UKCS), but the principles can be applied elsewhere.

Vessel Owners may choose to apply this guidance to fuel intended for ships use only.

This document provides practical guidance on delivering quality Marine Gasoil to offshore locations with a view to operating to a common standard throughout the offshore UKCS supply chain to achieve common specification requirements for maintenance and testing standards.

The new guidelines can be found here.

The first AMM of 2019 is planned for 30th of May at the Aberdeen Beach Ballroom. As always we look forward to seeing you all there. Seafarers especially welcome. Agenda to follow.
