Russian oil major Rosneft on Thursday (21 May) said its oil refinery in Syzran, has started production of IMO 2020 compliant low sulphur marine fuel RMLS 40.

The sulphur content in the RMLS 40 fuel does not exceed 0.5%, which fully complies with the requirements of the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL), it added. 

Rosneft stated meeting high environmental regulations is a key element of its 2020 strategy.

In order to reduce its environmental impact and produce environmentally friendly fuels, the company said it has implemented a number of large-scale projects to modernise its own production facilities.

In the first quarter of 2020, Rosneft delivered 112,000 tonnes of RMLS 40 type E II to domestic and foreign shipowners. 

In April, Rosneft Bunker also expanded the geographical availability of RMLS 40 low-sulphur residual fuel. 

In addition to the Far East, the Company began supplying an environmentally friendly type of marine fuel to the seaports of the Black Sea, the Arctic and Baltic regions.
