PORT COSTS

India/Haldia – garbage collection from vessels

We have been informed that Haldia Municipality has agreed to pick up garbage from vessels visiting Haldia every day on payment by HDC (Haldia Dock Complex), which will levy a service charge of RS 265 per day or part thereof on above account.

Mexico/Pajaritos – new dockage dues

Pemex have recently considered levying a new dockage charge of MX 4.24 per metre of the vessels’ LOA, per hour that the vessels remain berthed. Their initial plan entailed retroactive collection from 1 January 2001.

At a recent meeting, however, we understand that the retroactive collection efforts have been abolished as Pemex considered it impossible to introduce such additional cost into past sales agreements with their clients. It became clear that if these charges, issued by Pemex Refinación, were to be applied, they would have to be absorbed by Pemex Producción & Exploración. The two mentioned companies will meet imminently to solve this problem and INTERTANKO will continue to monitor developments and report new developments as soon as they become available.
