In April, sales of 380 centistokes (cSt) grade (versus on year) was recorded at 3.02 million mt (3.19 million mt); 180 cSt product at 23,100 mt (23,200 mt); 500 cSt material at 926,300 mt (876,600 mt).

Sales of 380 cSt grade decreased 5% on year at Singapore port in April. Coincidentally, the similar month saw the Singapore bunkering sector being affected by a series of off-spec issues regarding cat fines and low flash point.

Local bunker players suggest increased regulation of the entire bunker supply chain could solve the issue.
