Report Published on Heavy Fuel Oil and Bunkering Activity within the SGSSI Maritime Zone

The Government has now taken receipt of a report by Constantia Consulting on heavy fuel oil and bunkering activity at South Georgia. The report was commissioned by the Government earlier this year in line with objectives set out in its 5-year Strategy. Constant Consulting was awarded the contract following a competitive tendering process, and undertook a strategic environmental assessment of the risks posed by the carriage and use of heavy fuel oils and bunkering activity, taking into account the nature of South Georgia’s environment. The report identifies recommendations for consideration by the Government, which intends to develop proposals for consultation with stakeholders in the coming months.
