Bunkering: refuelling or transferring waste fuel
What you must do when you’re refuelling, or transferring waste oil when bunkering.
Bunkering is when any fuel is transferred to or from a vessel.
You must give us at least 48 hours’ notice that you’re going to bunker.

We need to know:

You must also complete the Bristol Harbour bunkering form (word doc, 53KB) (opens new window) before the bunkering takes place.
To complete the form you’ll need to know the:
- names or registration of any vessels or vehicles taking part

The bunkering form must be signed by the delivery driver and the person in charge of the vessel and returned to the Harbour Office.
You can return the form either:
