Sinopec’s Guangzhou refinery produces first low sulphur marine fuel
Asia’s top oil refinery Sinopec said that its Guangzhou refinery is able to produce very low-sulphur fuel oil (VLSFO) for the marine bunker fuel market.
The 1,600-tonne cargo was Guangzhou’s first batch of VLSFO production and was delivered to the storage tank at Sinopec Fuel Oil Sales Co via pipeline.
The marine fuel at Guangzhou refinery was mixed with residual oil and diesel, said Sinopec.
