BP Marine's commitment to our customers is a simple one: to consistently deliver quality marine fuels with outstanding levels of service throughout our network of strategically based ports
Marine fuels is a large and complex global industry and BP Marine is one of the world's foremost suppliers


Supply and security


BP Marine is part of BP’s supply and trading business, which has a world class reputation and is highly respected within the trading community. It has total responsibility for sourcing and selling all the energy that the BP group produces and requires. This strength in global trading ensures unrivalled levels of supply security and cost effective products throughout our global network of ports. With first class operations in a diverse portfolio of both hub and niche ports.


Through our continuous investment in infrastructure, upgrading of existing supply locations, investment in new key bunker fuel ports, and the extensive use of double-hulled barges, we will ensure that we meet your needs – today and in the future.


Quality products


Delivering on-specification products to our customers in full and on time, consistently throughout our port network is at the core of our business. We conduct stringent product testing during the manufacturing and delivery process to ensure all of our products meet ISO 8217 requirements.


Technical expertise


BP Marine provides its customers with a powerful problem-solving force through our experienced and dedicated technical team. Taking end-to-end responsibility for resolving any fuel quality, quantity or demurrage claims allows us to monitor the performance of its operations centrally and work towards constantly improving service levels.


The technical team acts as a focal point for sharing best practice around the world and monitors the operational standards within the BP Marine fuels business.


In addition, they play an influential role in the international bunker fuels industry, supporting legislative bodies and engine builders as well as conducting numerous programs within BP’s Global Research Centre.


Health, safety and environment


BP Marine encourages a 'zero incident mindset' in all employees, contractors and partners. This means that we will not be satisfied until we achieve zero incidents in our health, safety and environmental performance.


Environmental protection is central to everything we do. Our aim is zero spills. A full spill prevention programme forms part of our global assurance process, which includes training, pre-delivery inspections and full assessments throughout our global network.


We also are committed to the MARPOL 2020 convention and reducing the air pollution from ships, by introducing MARPOl 2020 compliant marine fuel in 2019.
