Creation of DeaL Energy

In 2022, J. Lauritzen joined forces with DFDS, one of Europe's largest ferry shipping and logistics companies, to co-found DeaL Energy. The two Danish companies, both which are part of the Lauritzen Fonden, share a joint vision to create a more progressive, extremely service-minded bunker procurement company.

DeaL Energy has a unique advantage in the bunkers market thanks to the combination of the rich history of its co-founders and their vast experience in multiple segments of the shipping industry.

Our Services

We guide our customers on a very personal level when analyzing bunker fuel prices and availability around the world.

As our valued client, you can expect daily updates about your deliveries, transparency surrounding price expectations, and our team will always consider possible cost-saving alternatives if they present themselves.

We follow the fuel and oil market closely and time our purchases strategically to secure the best prices for our clients.

We take both availability and lead time in the specific port into consideration when negotiating on your behalf to minimize risks and avoid any delays.

We have a proven track record of securing cost savings for our clients by utilizing our strong network & strategic market insights.

We ensure that appropriate ‘Terms & Conditions’ are put into place with all suppliers and traders.

Our team initiated and was an active part of the creation of the BIMCO Terms 2018, which is now used as the preferred contract in the bunker industry. When working with a client, we ensure that appropriate ‘Terms & Conditions’, preferably based on the BIMCO Terms 2018, are put into place with all suppliers and traders. This provides our customers with maximum security in case of claims and other disputes.

Our established network & strong reputation in the industry, also provide advantages to our clients who can benefit from existing agreements we have in place with suppliers and traders.

We are experienced in paper swaps and also assisting charterers/ owners on bunker clauses when they are negotiating Charter Parties. As your trusted procurement advisor, you can count on us to negotiate the best Terms & Conditions for your business and mitigate any risks.

DeaL Energy is committed to supporting each of our clients in obtaining quality marine fuel at competitive prices.

We work with a network of trusted Bunker Quantity Surveyors to ensure that the right amount of fuel is supplied, and the correct samples are taken to certify the quality of the fuel being delivered. Our team also checks the VLSFO prior to purchase based on COQ’s received from the suppliers and we follow up on quality issues and/or delays and monitor all invoices sent to our customers.

Our team will issue claims to suppliers when required, offer the possibility to check your fuel tests report to ensure the correct quality of fuel has been supplied, and claim for density shortages when needed. We produce various management reports customized for each of our clients to provide full transparency about the purchases we make, our KPI’s on timing of the market, benchmarking etc.
