Rio de Janeiro-based Petroleo Brasileiro S.A. (Petrobras) is planning to offer IMO 2020 compliant fuel coming next month.

“Please be advised that from Oct 1st 2019 onwards, Petrobras will reduce the maximum sulfur content on its bunker sales from 3.5% to 0.5% in order to meet the new global cap,” it stated in an industry email on Saturday (21 September).

Earlier in August, the company was running tests of 0.5% sulphur limit marine fuels at the Refinerie of Duque de Caxias (REDUC) as part of preparations for IMO 2020.
