It recorded total sales of 4.23 million metric tonnes (mt) in April 2018, slightly lower than sales of 4.25 million mt in the same month last year.
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.
