Kenoil Marine Services was founded in 2000 with a modest start of just two small second-hand wooden barges. As a bunker supplier and operator, the company grew over the years in size and capabilities, owning newbuild steel bunker tankers equipped with mass flow meters to supply marine fuel to a wide spectrum of vessels calling at the port of Singapore.
Kenoil has a strong following from its portfolio of longstanding clients, built on a relationship of professionalism, integrity and mutual trust.
Upon the retirement of its founder in 2020, a new management team has taken over the reins to further the business locally and internationally with the recent establishment of KOSMOS Maritime.
