The Malaysia World Maritime Day 2016 Conference and Exhibition in Kuala Lumpur saw SafeSTS formalise a partnership agreement with KA Petra SDN BHD to strengthen the provision of ship-to-ship transfer services in Malaysia, and to develop a pool of trained Malaysian Mooring Masters.

As a one-stop marine services provider to the oil and gas and maritime industries, KA Petra is the permit holder for the largest number of ship-to-ship transfer locations in Malaysia.

From its headquarters in Diss, Norfolk, SafeSTS operates a global network of lightering services, carrying out ship-to-ship transfer of oil, gas and dry cargo, and this new agreement with KA Petra is an indication of its high reputation in the lightering sector.

SafeSTS Managing Director Yvonne Mason, who attended at the Conference, is very pleased with this new agreement, saying: “At SafeSTS we’re committed to the highest standards of safety. We are an established team with over 30 year’s expertise and experience, and are contracted by many leading oil companies and commodity traders worldwide.

“SafeSTS has a well-deserved reputation for integrity and reliability, and is committed to raising the safety standards of ship-to-ship transfer; health and safety is at the forefront of everything we do. All operations are carried out in strict compliance with international guidelines and with marine pollution legislation. These are qualities clearly appreciated by KA Petra, and we are looking forward to working side by side with the company to strengthen its STS related services in Malaysia.”

Since 2010 SafeSTS has transferred over 300 million barrels of oil with no spills.
