Global energy and commodity price reporting agency Argus Media on Wednesday (21 July) published a report highlighting a halt in bunkering operations at Zhoushan, China due to an approaching typhoon:
Bunker supply operations at east China’s Zhoushan bunker port, including neighbouring Ningbo, on Wednesday (21 July) were paused from last night until today with strong winds and heavy rains caused by Typhoon In-Fa.
In-Fa is expected to make land in east China’s Zhejiang or southeast China’s Fujian province on 25 July, according to China’s Central Meteorological Observatory. A further suspension to bunkering operations is expected, said bunker suppliers.
Barge availability may become tight after the typhoon as some barges may be occupied serving unsupplied vessels delayed because of the suspended bunker operations.
Operation at south China ports like Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Yangpu and Fangcheng have also slowed with the arrival of Typhoon Cempaka, which made land in west Guangdong province’s Yangjiang yesterday.
