Viswa Expert Advice


Many years ago, on the website, I offered to clear doubts and questions on bunker fuels. It turned out to be a great experience for me and I would like to believe that it also turned out to be very useful and helpful for those who had many questions on bunker fuels which were mostly residual high sulfur fuels.

The benefit I got was, where I did not know the answer, I had to study and provide a sensible response to the readers and questions.

This enhanced the range of my knowledge and helped me in the long run. In addition, it earned me the name as “Bunker Guru” in the industry. This feature lasted for many years.

The arrangements ended when the ownership of the website went to another company.

Wherever I go and meet persons who are involved in the marine industry and more particularly the marine fuel industry, they recall this Bunker Guru episode and how many of them benefited by it.

Now that huge changes have taken place in the marine fuel industry and multiple fuels are being offered for use, the number of questions have also increased. I do now have an R&D department and other assistance so that I can once again take up the role of answering many questions from the marine industry professionals.

I do not want to confine this only to technical questions. Over the 4 decades of service to the industry, many of you have also sought my advice on personal, professional and career related questions and I have been very happy to provide my 2 cents worth of advice. Some of the advice I have provided has helped the seafarers and they have really acknowledged how they benefitted by this advice.

Starting from the new year, 1.1.2022, I will be offering a similar service for those in the marine profession, whatever may be their career, experience and responsibility level. It can be from the students to the CEOs in the industry and I will be happy to help.

I request you to address the questions to . Everything will be kept absolutely confidential. If you are comfortable, we can publish you question and answer in the Mfame website which has a current readership of nearly 120,000 per month. If you do not wish that your question should be published, it will not be done. While we would like to know who you are, your name or organization information will never be disclosed so that you have the freedom to ask any kind of question you have.

All I can promise is the benefit of over 40 years of experience in the marine field, in the bunker industry, in running a global organization etc.

I look forward to hearing from you starting from 1.1.2022.

As always, thank you for your patronage and Season’s Greetings!
