Bunker Survey Testing and Inspection

VALS bunker fuel survey professionals provide professional quantity inspection services for clients on a global basis.

As bunker fuel is often the largest contributor to the operational costs of a ship, it is critical that the fuel purchaser ensures the correct amount of fuel is received, or has sufficient information to substantiate their claim in the event of any dispute.

As bunkering operations often take place some distance from the fuel purchaser’s office, it is in their interest to engage a surveyor to verify the quantity delivered and oversee fuel sampling for laboratory analysis.

Reports issued for bunker quantity surveys include:

  • A quantity delivered calculation based on density and water testing
  • Detailed bunker survey and analytical fuel reports
  • Photographs as requested and when permitted
