Foss provides a vital link within the oil and gas industry, both in shipping and upstream development. In addition to ship assist and escort services of ships calling on the refinery and storage terminals of the U.S. West Coast, Foss also delivers bunkers and transports refined products and raw industry materials between supplier, seller and buyer.

Nowhere is Foss Maritime’s commitment to the environment and safe operations more evident than in our handling and transport of bunkers and petroleum.

With the largest fleet of double-hull petroleum barges on the West Coast, Foss has the capacity to handle up to 35,000 barrels. Our experienced and dedicated bunker and petroleum transportation, and shore side personnel, management and crews are committed to meeting and exceeding regulatory mandates in all operating barges.

Examples of Ongoing Projects

  • The Foss fleet of bunker barges at ports in San Francisco, Los Angeles and Long Beach, provide terminal-to-terminal transfers and delivery of bunkers directly to ships
  • The San Pedro barge in operation in Southern California was converted to provide mobile vapor recovery to customers within the port. Able to attach alongside, the barge provides vapor recovery for docking or anchored vessels anywhere in the L.A., Long Beach and El Segundo regions. 
  • Foss proactively placed vapor recovery systems on all operating barges in Los Angles and Long Beach, acting in advance of regulatory mandates
