Houston-based physical supplier of marine fuels GCC Bunkers on Wednesday (28 August) said it has entered into a processing agreement with Texas International Terminals to produce ISO 8217 and IMO 2020 compliant 0.5% sulphur bunker fuel oil and 0.1% ECA specification gasoil in the Houston, Texas area, starting in early 2020.

“Our mission from the day we started GCC has been to provide solutions to our customers,” said GCC Bunkers’ Commercial Director, Zach Stansbury.

“Now, more than ever, the marine fuel supply business needs to provide absolute assurance of quality and reliability to its customers, and that is what we intend to do.”

GCC Bunkers will supply IMO 2020 specification 0.5% sulphur bunker fuel oil and 0.1% sulphur ECA specification gasoil to its customers through dedicated, chartered bunker barges, it adds.

It will also continue to supply 3.5% sulphur specification fuel oil to its contract customers from separate dedicated barges, ensuring that there can be no sulphur contamination.

Texas International Terminals, located in Galveston, Texas, will operate a simple distillation unit with a capacity of 50,000 barrels per day.

The terminal is a world class liquid and dry bulk multi-modal facility for deep draft vessel, unit train, manifest rail, barge, and trucks along the Galveston ship channel.
