Sinopec Shengli Petrochemical on Tuesday (28 April) said it has successfully produced and exported low sulphur marine fuel, achieving a milestone for the Dongying district, according to Sinopec News Network, the company’s official news agency. 

Thirty tankers carrying 5,000 metric tonnes of low sulphur marine fuel on Wednesday (22 April) were transported to Longkou Port for storage and later transferred to Sinopec’s export warehouse.

In early 2020, Shengli refinery started planning the production of low sulphur marine fuel in order to overcome the downturn in the fuel and diesel markets caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

By the end of March, raw materials including  low sulphur crude oil, and blending equipment were transported to the refinery. With the team’s high level of cooperation and execution, the refinery reported the successful production of its first batch low sulphur marine fuel that met IMO 2020 requirements by mid April. 

Sinopic Shengli notes that it expects to produce 260,000 mt of low sulphur marine fuel throughout 2020.
