Bunkering in the Bering Sea

The Bering Sea is one of the northernmost seas in the Pacific Ocean, bordered by the Alaska and the Kamchatka Peninsulas. At its north lies the Bering Strait which connects the Bering Sea to the Arctic Ocean. Bunkering in the Bering Sea is done either close to port or at sea. At all times, a close eye on the current bunker oil price must be kept, as fuel prices are a large part of any marine vessel’s costs.

History of the Bering Sea

The Bering Sea was first explored by a European navigator named Vitus Bering, who sailed all the way from the Pacific to the Arctic. Its waters are within the jurisdiction of both the U.S. and Russia, with portions declared open international water.

Resources

Due to the many currents, as well as the ice and confluence of weathers, the Bering Sea has a pristine and unique ecosystem which is still being explored.

  • In the greenbelt, where the shallow continental shelf meets the deeper North Aleutians basin, there is constant production of phytoplankton.
  • The seasonal change of ice-melting and reforming affects the salinity levels of the water, which enhances plankton productivity. Ice also acts as a substrate for the development of algae.
  • This ecosystem, while little understood and enormously complex, supports a huge diversity of fish, shellfish and other marine species. This is why the Bering sea is considered one of the most profitable fishing seas in the world. Large seafood companies from all around the world fish here commercially, with annual fishing revenues approaching 2 billion dollars.

Changes

Due to global warming ice formation has reduced, which has resulted in changes in the Bering Sea ecosystem as well. Specifically, changes in plankton blooming has been observed. The Bering Sea ecosystem’s capacity to sustain life has been reduced.

Marine Traffic

Ships travelling through the Bering Sea are on the rise. This area is seeing a growth in fishing vessels, military vessels, cruise ships, and research vessels. One reason for this is the increase in navigable waters. Vessels are able to travel farther north and stay out longer into the winter.

While there are many ports available for refuelling, sometimes bunkering is a better option. If you fuel in open ocean you avoid port fees, while saving both time and money. Why go into port if you only need to fuel? Contact Clipper Oil for all bunkering needs in the Bering Sea.
