Bunker supply disruption
Mar 27, 2003
Bunker supplies of MGO and MDO at South African ports will be disrupted between 23.00 on Monday, 31 March and 07.00 on Tuesday, 2 April to enable the implementation of new Customs tax regulations affecting distillates, which refer to Duty at Source (DAS). Only emergency supplies will be available.
IFO stocks will however continue to be available.
During the shutdown period the Joint Bunkering Services and South African revenue Services will undertake a stock take and tax inspection of the system. This procedure will be repeated each month during the same window period.
