About us

Petrol Bunkering & Trading Netherlands BV, in its present form, was established in 2012, by Ed Freese and Evert Elema. Before starting the Petrol Bunkering office, Mr Freese has headed the bunker department of a bunker trading company for many years, focussing on long term contract negotiation and risk management. Mr Elema started his career in the bunker industry in 2000, at a bunker trading company. For many years he has served large shipping companies with their world wide requirements, specializing in deliveries in uncommon and difficult areas. Also with the dutch office since its establishment is Johan Bolhuis, an enthusiastic and experienced bunker trader with expertise in every aspect of the bunker industry.

In February 2017, an office has been opened in Curaçao, PBT International NV. All trading activities performed by the PBT Group are conducted for- and on behalf of this entity. The Curaçao office is manned by Patrick Spong.

At the end of 2018, the dutch office was extended with two more individuals. Clarence Dykstra, with over 30 years of experience in both the bunker- and shipping industry,  and Robin Sapulete. Mr Dykstra is responsible for the company’s owners desk, while Mr Sapulete will assist both Mr Dykstra and the trading team on a daily basis.
