Who we are
We provide energy to marine vessels around the world
Minerva is one of the world’s largest bunker fuel suppliers, marketing and supplying fuels and lubricants to ships in port and at sea, covering more than 150 ports worldwide. Operating from hubs in Geneva, Athens, New York, Singapore, Antwerp and Las Palmas, we serve customers around the globe with efficient, transparent, and environmentally responsible marine fuel solutions.
We procure in bulk from diverse sources and deliver to more than 600 customers from all major commercial shipping sectors. Minerva has an annual physical delivery capacity of over 25 million tonnes and offers unrivalled capabilities, service and financial strength.
We operate one of the world’s largest and most modern fleets of high specification bunkering tankers through our shipping arm, MM Marine.
Our vision is to offer our customers more than just molecules. We are shaping the future of bunkering by leading the sector’s modernization to become a more consistent, diversified and stronger industry.
Modern bunkering is more than just supplying fuel. Minerva is leading the evolution of the bunkering industry to meet modern shipping needs.
Our mission is to ensure that maritime shippers get more from their bunker supplier than just delivery. As technology continues to transform our industry, we are committed to harnessing its full potential. Our investments in advanced metering, blockchain applications and smart contracts offer enhanced transparency and security in marine fuel transactions.
We offer our customers value, transparency, flexibility and reliability through a modern logistics portfolio, integrated supply chain, dense global delivery network and technology-enabled solutions.
We do this every day by leveraging:
- Our global portfolio of assets
- Extensive capability and broad expertise
- The network and financial strength of the Mercuria Energy Group
This is the future of bunkering.
One of the most valuable characteristics of the Minerva workforce is its diversity. Our team of more than 700 employees on board our fleets and in commercial hubs around the globe is diverse in its nationality, geography, culture, education and work experience.
We lean on our people. On our vessels, our people are key to the 24/7 activities and ensure things happen safely and efficiently. They are our supply chain. Our people have extensive capabilities and the average employee has more than eighteen years of direct industry experience. We have dedicated teams covering all aspects of the value chain from business development, sales and cargo trading to risk management, operations and middle and back-office. It is this backbone of human support that ensures our customers get the best possible service and solutions that they need.
Through our MM Marine subsidiary, we have a dedicated fleet management company that operates a wide range of modern bunkering vessels. The team has a commitment to safety, environmental protection, efficiency and reliability. The organization has an integrated approach to ship management that covers Health Safety Quality & Environment, crewing, maintenance, procurement, technical support operations and vessel chartering.
Similarly, our Marine Oil Terminal subsidiary manages all aspects of our terminal operations including constructing and operating product storage facilities that have connections to local port infrastructure.
The Minerva culture is entrepreneurial while being rigorous and highly disciplined. We evolve in a constantly changing environment and our people anticipate the new dynamics of the global bunkering market.
Our approach is founded in teamwork but we also recognize individual contribution. We empower our employees and encourage people to make decisions and be responsible for their outcomes.
We welcome new talents and specialized skill sets that can add value to Minerva’s goals. If you are interested in opportunities at Minerva, follow us on LinkedIn and contact us.
