Russian oil major Rosneft on Tuesday (16 June) said the first batch of highly environmentally friendly marine fuel RMLS 40 type E II manufactured by its Syzran Oil Refinery is now for sale.
The first bunker sale took place in the Black Sea in the port of Novorossiysk where 700 metric tonnes of newly produced fuel were delivered to the client vessel.
RMLS 40’s sulfur content is not more than 0.5%, which fully complies with the requirements of the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL), it said.
Rosneft said the release of a new highly environmentally friendly fuel testifies to the high technological capabilities of the company’s processing plants and helps to minimize the environmental impact of transport.
