Activity & Goals

Socomet Bunkering

Since its creation, SOCOMET has been acting as broker only, bringing together first class customers with first class suppliers across the globe. Basing our business relations on mutual trust and long term partnerships allows us to provide our clients with a reliable picture of the market.

In a changing environment where accurate information is of the essence, we are keeping a close eye on the latest market trends, whether it is on prices, quality issues and ISO specifications or new SECA regulations. As member of the IBIA and of the Chambre des courtiers d’affrétement de Paris, we feel it is our duty to promote good practice in our industry and to share our information with our partners. We also promote these ideas and values by giving lectures about bunkering on the Shipping and Trading Masters Programme at the Université de Nantes.

We edit daily and weekly reports that are available upon request, so feel free to contact us for any information you might need.

Our team of four brokers and two assistants is available 24/7 to answer your bunkering needs. Whether you are operating your vessels on regular lines, on the spot market, or on offshore projects, we can offer a full range of bunker buying solutions, from simple spot purchases to formula-based contracts or hedging. Our long established relationships with reputable banks allow us to propose the full panel of Risk Management tools to our customers.
