We have listed below a selection of reviews from our events and courses. 

The Oxford Bunker Course | ARACON | The Bunkering SymposiumThe IBIA Annual Convention



'Excellent course, excellent teachers, a unique experience which enabled me to experience the industry from different perspectives allowing me to reflect on my own role. I would recommend this to everyone.'
KPI Bridge Oil (UK)

'I thought the course was brilliant, it was a packed five days but well worth it.  The lecturers were top class, and made everything easily understandable – the course slides were also very straight forward and to the point.  The group we had was really good as well, and the activities organised were great.  All in all I would definitely recommend it to those who would join Seychelles Petroleum in this field of bunkering.'
Seychelles Petroleum Co (Seychelles)

‘As a surveyor it is very important to get acquainted with the position of all parties that are involved in the bunker business, and this Symposium provides  the proper platform for this to happen’
Tanido B.V. (Netherlands)

'Interesting, informative and well organised. Qualified and high profile speakers.'
BIMCO (Netherlands)

'ARACON 2017 was my first participation in an international bunkering event in more than 25 years, and I was impressed that Petrospot managed to bring together 150 industry professionals for a two-day program packed with interesting presentations and discussions. Expertly moderated by Llewellyn Bankes-Hughes, I particularly enjoyed Rob Phillips presenting the buyers’ requirements to their bunker suppliers; as the Bunkering Manager of ArcelorMittal, his views carry a lot of weight, amplified by his role as Chairman of the Institute of Bunker Buyers and Consumers. Session 2: 2020 and the Global Sulphur Cap was also highly pertinent, and I particularly enjoyed Intertek Global Technical Manager Michael Green’s insights. The networking opportunities were well timed and laid out, in particular, the Reception and Gala Dinner at the Royal Maas Yacht Club. The only question is what The Hilton Hotel thought was going on, as they variously sign-posted the event as Petrosport and Pertospot.'
Peter Andersen, Senior Director, Maritime Business Development, Genscape.
