Sinopec Jinling Petrochemical on Monday (20 April) said it has adjusted its production structure to increase the output of low sulphur marine fuel. Its production system also alternates between producing low sulphur marine fuel and catalytic materials, according to Sinopec News Network, the company’s official news agency.  

The refinery reportedly produced 7.1 million metric tonnes of low sulphur marine fuel in Q1 2020 and 50,000 mt in March in order to match market demand.

Production planning was especially strenuous as low sulphur fuel requires careful monitoring along every step of the process at all times, noted the company.

Sinopec adds that the production system also had to be able to switch between fuel blending and the production of catalytic materials without hampering the refinery’s existing output of diesel oil. 

However, with detailed planning, team cooperation and the company’s in-house developed engineering innovations, production targets were achieved in terms of quality and quantity.
