VERITAS PETROLEUM SERVICES
We were the pioneers of marine fuel testing in 1981, plus bunker quantity surveys in 1987 and very quickly became established as a world-leading partner to the maritime industry. Before the International Marine Fuel Testing Standard, ISO8217, was introduced in 1987, we were already global-leaders in marine fuel quality testing and 40 years on, remain so to this day.
From the introduction of IMO MARPOL Annex VI in 2005, environmental legislation aimed at reducing SOx, NOx and Particulate-Matter emissions, has driven many developments in marine fuels and lubricants, with our innovations providing valued-solutions to the world’s shipping fleet.
To achieve a sustainable shipping industry, attention is now focused on reducing CO2 and Green-House-Gas emissions over the next 30 years and we are at the forefront in fuel and oil advisory testing services supporting the maritime sector to achieve these goals.
