Two batches of bonded fuel oil stored in different storage tanks in the Qingdao Tianan Heavy Duty Asphalt Public Bonded Warehouse were recently blended together, according to a Saturday (2 April) notice from the Shandong Provincial People’s Government.

“The two batches of bonded fuel oil are 34,000 tons of low-sulphur bonded fuel oil and 6,000 tons of high-sulphur bonded fuel oil respectively,” it stated.

“This is the first time that Shandong Province has carried out the blending and blending business of bonded fuel oil.”

The government highlighted the product still meeting the IMO 2020 sulphur limit of 0.50% after blending operations.

It said there has been an increased need by local oil enterprises to source for IMO 2020 compliant bunker fuel since its implementation from 1 January 2020.

“Facing the urgent needs of enterprises for the blending and blending business of bonded fuel oil, Huangdao Customs, a subsidiary of Qingdao Customs, specially formulated a special supervision plan for the blending business of bonded fuel oil to ensure the development of the blending business of bonded fuel oil.”
