Petrobras starts IMO 2020 compliant fuel trials; warns of viscosity changes

22 Aug 2019

Rio de Janeiro-based Petroleo Brasileiro S.A. (Petrobras) on Thursday (22 August) said it will be running tests of 0.5% sulphur limit marine fuels at the Refinerie of Duque de Caxias (REDUC) as part of preparations for IMO 2020.

“During the period of tests, the marine fuels to be offered in the Port of Rio de Janeiro most likely will contain a lower viscosity,” it stated.

“Please note that although we guarantee the ISO 8217:2005 in the Port of Rio de Janeiro, being a period of tests, we are not able to know precisely the viscosity of the products beforehand to be offered.”
