       Bunker Claims / Investigative Surveys







Bunker Stem Investigative Survey (or BSIS) is an all-inclusive service and unique to Petro Inspect which is carried out on all vessels prior stemming bunkers. ONLY with BSIS you get the true ‘snap shot’ of the bunker ROB onboard the vessel and the barge and thus be in better position to deal with any post-bunker disputes should one arise.



2 Our expertise is frequently called upon to intervene in an event of ‘Bad’ Bunker dispute claims i.e. bunker contamination and consequential liabilities arising from the supply of off- specification fuels where we will ensure that proper chain of custody is maintained prior to subsequent laboratory analysis.

If a service is not covered in the above list, please feel free to call us; if we can assist with the required service, we certainly will; however, if we find that another firm can serve the client better, we will refer the client accordingly.
