About us

SafeSTS is a ship-to-ship (STS) service provider established by a team with over 30 years' expertise and experience.

We work for, and alongside, industry leaders as well as Governments to conduct ship-to-ship (STS) transfers of oil, LPG and essential cargoes, and to improve standards and procedures, particularly in emergency situations. We commit to doing the job to the very highest standard every time. Successfully audited by leading oil majors and trading houses, we have a well-deserved reputation for integrity, reliability and expertise.


EXPERTISE. INTEGRITY. RELIABILITY. - Our values can be summed up in those three simple words.

Did you know that the principals of our company were instrumental in setting up and co-writing the standards for both equipment and procedures used in ship-to-ship transfer services? This explains why, as a company, we are so deeply committed to the highest standards. It's not just something we say? it's something we do.

Our operations

Operating in a global network of numerous lightering locations, we carry out the ship-to-ship transfer of oil and gas. We use only the highest quality equipment and a global pool of highly experienced, Marpol compliant, Mooring Masters. All operations are carried out in strict accordance with ICS/OCIMF and SIGTTO guidelines and comply fully with Marpol Chapter 8 requirements.

One of our core strengths is understanding vessel dynamics, operability, and logistics, underpinned by a respect for the country and culture in which we work.

Newly pioneered operational locations

SafeSTS has pioneered operational bases in areas in which STS lightering has not previously been conducted to meet market needs and increase logistic networks. Through collaboration with nationals, utilising local infrastructure and expertise whilst demonstrating cultural awareness and respecting all parties within these chains, these bases are proving successful. Examples of which are; Peru, Namibia, Uruguay, Japan & Mozambique.

Our People
