The agreement runs for a year with an option for renewal.
Lumut port contains a sizeable coal terminal and has around 500 vessels calls a year the report said.
SIL has a range of bunkering and investment interests in Malaysia and in June announced it was setting up bunkering services in Bintulu port.
