The first bonded bunkering operation organised under a new licensing scheme to support provincial oil enterprises at Guangzhou took place on Saturday (12 March), according to Yangcheng Evening News.

The marine refuelling operation oversaw the bunker tanker Guangzhou Rongsheng 6 delivering 350 metric tonnes (mt) of bonded bunker fuel to the Panama-registered MV Flying Loong along the No. 1 berth of Nansha Zhudian Wharf.

Guangzhou has been making progress to stimulate its regional bunkering sector, after receiving permission from the State Council of China in late 2021 allowing the province to issue local bonded bunkering licenses.
