Sinopec Shanghai Petrochemical on Tuesday (23 June) said its 100-day plan to maximise the untapped potential of its refinery to produce low sulphur heavy marine fuel oil has now entered a stage where the refinery is able to scale production.
It reports a record 65,000 metric tonnes (mt) of low sulphur heavy marine fuel oil being shipped out of the refinery in June.
Even though the refinery equipment had earlier been modified to increase output, the refinery had to think of storage solutions that would meet the pressure requirements of the fuel, it said.
While tanks T-212/214 were well conditioned to store the fuel, they also successfully modified tank T-103 located in a different section of the refinery and increased storage capacity by 30,000 cubic meters, and eased pressure on its inventory.
Modification on the tank included utlising two pumps simultaneously to create the necessary pressure and delivery speed of the fuel.
The company noted it has shipped out one tanker vessel of low sulphur heavy marine fuel oil every two days, totalling to nine ships for the month of June so far.
