August 19, 2022 [ Manifold Times ] – Singapore-based PetroSeraya Pte. Ltd, the fuel management and tank leasing arm of leading integrated energy company YTL PowerSeraya Group, has been serving international clients since 2007.
To align with the Group’s digitalisation and sustainability goals, they are making strategic moves to optimise its fuel management assets. In its commercial terminal operation activities, PetroSeraya also seeks to capitalise and build upon the team’s fuel handling and procurement capabilities.
A total of 18 oil storage tanks each with 45,000 m3 of capacity are operated by PetroSeraya; 14 of the tanks currently hold HSFO and VLSFO marine fuel grades for clients, while the remaining four contain distillate material.
Twelve HSFO/VLSFO bunker fuel storage tanks are equipped with heating elements and capabilities to support blending operations with six featuring PulseAir mixing systems for enhanced homogenous blending.
The whole oil storage facility situated on Jurong Island is supported by over 50 km of pipeline to minimise product co-mingling. The site is also equipped with six jetty berths.
See Yoong Hwee brings with him over 20 years of experience in IT consisting of leadership roles across manufacturing, transportation, logistics and utility industries.
“My technology background has equipped me with the expertise to develop new strategies aimed at driving operational excellence in PetroSeraya – greater efficiency and flexibility as well as added value to our customers. We will be doing much more to optimise operations,” explains Mr See.
“This includes introducing data-driven management systems to guide decisions right from cargo acquisition, down to the planning of vessel movements and even facility maintenance where we are now exploring the use of drones to inspect the condition of tanks.”
Meanwhile, operations at the PetroSeraya oil storage terminal have been moving towards sustainability in line with the global trend of decarbonisation.
“Feasibility studies to convert our storage facilities to contain greener bunker fuel material such as biofuel, methanol and other alternative marine fuels are in progress but there is much work ahead,” he shares.
Rafe will be the point person to help PetroSeraya foster partnerships with the bunkering and shipping sector.
“He will also oversee client management for the utilisation of our storage tanks, while making sure the company is adequately prepared to meet sustainability targets ahead of IMO 2030/2050.”
