Sinopec Qingdao Petrochemical on Wednesday (12 May) said it has successfully exported 2,161 metric tonnes of low-sulphur marine fuel, according to Sinopec News Network, the company’s official news agency.
The cargo of fuel has successfully cleared the customs division customs at Qingdao Port and entered the customs-supervised division of the Sinopec warehouse.
The Chinese government issued the first export quota for low sulphur marine fuel at the end of April, and on Monday (11 May), Sinopec received its export license.
On the same day, 2,161 mt of low sulphur marine fuel was produced at Qingdao, and the team worked together with officials to have it cleared at customs the next day.
“Low sulphur marine fuel produced by the company was exported smoothly after the government implemented the quota system to manage the process,” said Lin Yongsen, deputy manager of the Sinopec Qingdao Petrochemical Development Planning Department.
“We are thankful for the excellent work ethics shown by our production team and the efficiency shown by the customs and commodity inspection company.
“The smooth process is important to provide greater confidence and motivations for enterprises to promote the production of low sulphur marine oil and enter the market.”
