Guangzhou PetroChina Fuel Oil Co., Ltd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of PetroChina Company Limited, on Wednesday (31 August) successfully completed its first bonded fuel bunkering operation in Nansha District.
Guangzhou PetroChina Fuel Oil used barge Hongheng 99 to supply 700 metric tonnes (mt) of bonded fuel to Singapore-flagged container ship Bhudthi Bhum at the Nansha Phase III Wharf.
This is the first bonded bunkering operation embarked by the firm since it obtained the city’s bonded bunkering licence on 5 July, marking the company’s successful launch of its bonded bunkering business in South China.
The firm became the third company to be granted the licence by Guangzhou Municipal Bureau of Commerce after two other local players, namely Guangzhou Development Bibi Youpin Co., Ltd. and Guangzhou Circle Storage Co., Ltd., obtained the licence in February.
Guangzhou Development Bibi Youpin Co., Ltd. and Guangzhou Circle Storage Co., Ltd. completed bonded fuel delivery operations on 10 March and 12 April respectively.
Manifold Times recently reported PetroChina International South China Co., Ltd., another wholly-owned subsidiary of PetroChina Company Limited, obtained a bonded bunkering business licence from the Guangzhou Municipal Bureau of Commerce.
