Following 10 years of presence in Stamford, Connecticut, Monjasa has expanded further west with a second office in America’s largest oil and shipping community in Houston, Texas.
With offices in Stamford and Houston, both shipping capitals of North America, we continue to demonstrate ourselves as a different trading partner in a historically well-consolidated bunker market with high entry barriers.
Partnerships from Miami to Seattle
For almost ten years, Monjasa has been playing an active role in the US. From states of New York and Florida on the East Coast, over Texas to Washington and California on the West Coast, Monjasa is a competitive supplier of marine fuels. As a direct result we are seeing a growing demand across America with our trading team in Stamford and Houston engaging with a continuously increasing number of US-based customers.
With close relations to both suppliers, customers and other business partners, we see ourselves as an integral part of the American shipping industry. And being active members of both the Association of Ship Brokers and Agents (ASBA) and the Connecticut Maritime Association (CMA) only strengthens those ties further.

Office and supply location in Houston
In 2019, Monjasa established a supply area in Houston in the US Gulf region to further match supply and demand for many of our global customers operating in the area.
The operation includes three dedicated Monjasa barges supplying all grades of marine fuels across the Houston Greater Area, which includes 12 different supply locations ranging across more than 400 km. With our own logistics in place and by loading oil products from the local Bostco oil terminal, we are able offer a high level of flexibility, which is needed in this great American shipping hub.
In 2021, we joined America’s largest oil and shipping community with a local office in Houston, Texas, thereby establishing our second office in North America.
With an increasing number of customers and suppliers located in Houston, this was a natural next step for Monjasa Americas. Located downtown Houston, this daily presence brings new opportunities to bridge upstream and downstream business relationships.
Becoming first choice for cruise lines
Since establishing our first North American office in Stamford in 2011, we have grown into a broad trading partner in the US. This includes supplying cruise ships embarking on their journey from the coast of Florida.
You have to prove yourself in this market and it has taken us several years to build up a service culture matching the high expectations of reliable fuel supply by cruise lines and operators.
One element in building this culture is to remain in collaboration with our customers before, during, and after a bunker supply. This goes for our bunker trading and when we arrange physical supply through Monjasa sister offices, not least our Americas team colleagues in Panama.
