Posted By Faisal Yusuf on Mar 27, 2010 |

The bunker calculation is simple and needs the following:

– Tank Sounding data and Tank Capacity Table. The Corrected Sounding means below is the sounding after correcting with vessel’s trim and list.

– Temperature of Oil on Tanks,

– Oil Density @15*C,

– Table ASTM 54B (VCF) and Table ASTM 56 (WCF).

Now we could go with sample of 1 tank to test the calculation.

** Question :

FO Tank No. 1 Center, Corrected Sounding = 3.27 Meter,

Temperature = 34*C,and density @ 15*C = 0.9903 (given density).

Tank Volume at Sounding 3.20 M = 157.20 Cubic Meter,

at Sounding 3.30 M = 163.60 Cubic Meter.

** Answer :

– The Quantity in Metric Ton = Oil Vol x VCF x WCF,

– Observe Volume = {(3.27 – 3.20) / (3.30 – 3.20) x (163.60 – 157.20)} + 157.20

= (0.07/0.10) x (6.40) + 157.20 = 4.48 + 157.20 = 161.68 Cu.M.

– T 54B (VCF) > Density @ 15*C 0.9903 = 0.9870 (see the above picture you need to interpolate if any different numbers on both columns).

ASTM Table 54B – T 56 (WCF) : Density @15*C 0.9903 = 0.9892

(Quick formula with reducing factor for WCF is Density @ 15*C – 0.0011 = 0.9903 – 0.0011 = 0.9892).

We don’t need to see the table anymore.

– So, The Quantity in MT is 161.68 x 0.9870 x 0.9892 = 157.85 MT.

Sample calculation tanks sounding attached below (the Temp below should be 34 C).

Note : If you do calculation with Volume in Barrel, just uses *ASTM Table 6B for VCF*, *ASTM Table 11 for WCF in Long Ton* and then *ASTM Table 13 for WCF in Metric Ton*.

For the above calculation, you could download the software BunkerCal by follow this link http://www.sevensurveyor.com/software/bunker-calculation/

Just drop your comments around this topic.

Hi.. Both Trim and List have the same mean to state unevenness condition of the vessel. Trim is stated the different between fore and aft draft condition, while List for inclination to port (left) or starboard (right). Both of them influence the flat of liquid surface on tanks. So, to make the surface flat, it need correction to calculate accurately. And commonly, there is table available for list correction.

October 20, 2016

hi dear i’m new in this indutry so i want to know if there’s anyrelation betwen the list and the calculation of trim

why we will us need the list for

that list must we caculate it or there’s a table about the list need your answer to guide me more

Hi,

Am a trainee surveyor from Singapore.

2 question:

1. How could we confirmed if the ship tank is VNET. If so how can we do a calculation/handle for VNET situation.

2. How can we get the correct VCF by only using calculation/table 54.

Could you pls email a copy of the table 54b.

April 9, 2012

Dear Ace,

The factor is to find WCF (weight correction factor) for T56.

Quick formula with reducing factor for WCF is Density @ 15*C – 0.0011

example: density 0.9903 – 0.0011.

t56 = 0.9892. We don’t need to see the table anymore.

dear all,

im looking for relation direct between density at 15 and density observed,

by this way: Density 15=f (Dobs,T)

and tanks.

October 18, 2011

Dear Harendra,

The oil nature is the more temperture hit, the more volume reach.

If your tank capacity is 50m x 25m x 10m = 12,500 m3, you should find the the quantity in m3 at 1m ullage.

As per above tank, you 1m ullage is 50m x 25m x 9m = 11,250 m3.

The 11,250 m3 is the maximum volume in m3 that required for your tank.

Check the astm table for your cargo density and heating temperature. If use astm table 54b, when density 0.910 @ 20*c the factor is 0.9962.

Then 11,250 m3 x 0.9662 = 11,207.25 m3 @ 15*c.

If the heating applied, then temperature increased to 30*c and density at 0.910 the factor in astm table 54b is 0.9886, and your volume m3 will be increased to

11,207.25 m3 : 0.9886 = 11,336.49 m3. That means you have loaded excessive volume to the intended ullage.

To cope with this issue, you should calculate the final volume m3 after heating where:

11,250 m3 x 0.9886 = 11,121.75 m3 @ 15*c.

and 11,121.75 m3 : 0.9962 = 11,164.17 m3. Just find the ullage that point to 11,164.17 m3. Your cargo will be save at 1m ullage after heating.

Actually it has the simple formula;

loaded volume = volume m3 at intended ullage x VCF final (0.910 @ 30*c) : VCF initial (0.910 @ 20*c)

11,250 m3 x 0.9886 : 0.9962 = 11,164.17 m3.

Mr. A,

The Bunkering Process is commonly as the transfering oil from one ship to another. The process is simple, the feeder ship or barge that carried oil, will be alongside at the ship that needs the oil (lets say it mother). After alongside, the feeder will prepare the pump and hose to connecting to the mother ship manifold. The mother tanks and/or flowmeter is checked and prepared by the ship crews. When all preparation is completed, the feeder will start to pump the oil to the mother tank as amount agreed. The quantity agreed could be ascertained by sounding or pointed by flowmeter. After completing the transfer, the tanks or flowmeter will re-check to get the quantity. Then the feeder cast off.

Trim Correction for Tank No. 1C in MM

——————————– TRIM ——————————–

SOUNDING …… -1.00 / 0.00 / 1.00 / 2.00 / …

…. 1.00 …………… -200 / 000 / 200 / 400 / …

…. 2.00 …………… -600 / 000 / 400 / 600 / …

…. 3.00 …………… -600 / 000 / 600 / 800 / …

List Correction for Tank No. 1C in MM

——————————— PORT / STARBOARD ————

LIST ….. / 3.0 / 2.0 / 1.0 / 0.0 / 1.0 / 2.0 / 3.0 / …

Corr …… 300 / 200 / 100 / 000 / -100 / -200 / -300 /

From the both tables we could get the corrected sounding as below :

Corrected Sounding (CS) = Sounding (S) + Trim Correction (TC) + List Correction (LC)

TC at S 1.50 M and Trim at 1.00 M is 300 MM (by Interpolation)

LC at List 1.0 degree to starboard (the right part beside 0.0 degree) is -100 MM.

CS = S + TC + LC.

CS = 1500 + 300 +(-100) = 1,800 – 100 = 1,700 MM or 1.70 M.

That’s all..
