Oryx starts Las Palmas, Canary Islands, bunker operations: spokeswoman

Bunker supplier Oryx began bunker operations in the Canary Islands last week, a company spokeswoman said Wednesday.

Bunker supplier Oryx began bunker operations in the Canary Islands last week, a company spokeswoman said Wednesday. "We inaugurated a new terminal in September ... bunker operations started last week," the spokeswoman said. "They bought a 45,000 mt HSFO cargo from Brofjorden for October 25-30 loadings," a Canary Island bunker source said, while a second source said Oryx had discharged marine gasoil in Las Palmas in the prior week. Oryx Energies, part of the Addax and Oryx Group, opened a new oil terminal in Las Palmas in mid-September to provide storage capacity. "It has a long, deep water jetty and a design that offers flexibility and fast loading/discharging rates for a wide variety of vessels and shipping operators," the company said in a statement in September. Some trading sources said they had yet to see Oryx begin bunker operations in the port. An Oryx source said in September that they were planning to begin operations in mid-October, though this appeared to be pushed back, according to local competitors. "We had their first quote yesterday to supply on 5-10 November," a Las Palmas trader said Wednesday. There are currently four main local suppliers in Las Palmas: Aegean, Cepsa, Repsol and Peninsula. --Marko Trtica, marko.trtica@platts.com --Jelena Grigorjeva, jelena.grigorjeva@platts.com --Edited by Annie Siebert, ann.siebert@platts.com
