Sinopec 0.5% LSFO bunker heads to maritime institute for trial tests

06 Mar 2019

China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation, or Sinopec, in late February produced its first stem of 0.5% sulphur limit fuel oil (LSFO) at its subsidiary refinery in southern island province of Hainan, reports the China Securities Journal.

The 2,200 metric tonnes (mt) of product have been shipped to a Shanghai maritime institute for trial tests.

The Hainan refinery is the second Sinopec refinery producing IMO 2020 compliant marine fuel, after production of a 6,000 mt LSFO bunker stem by Sinopec Shanghai Petrochemical Corp in January.

The General Manager of Sinopec Fuel Oil Company in October said all of the company’s bunker fuel supplied will be IMO 2020 compliant by the deadline of 1 January 2020.
