Sinopec and Hambantota International Port commence wholesale bunker fuel deliveries

03 Mar 2021

Hambantota International Port (HIP) on Monday (1 March) launched the wholesale supply of marine bunker fuels, together with its strategic partner Sinopec Fuel Oil Lanka Limited (SFOL).

Local company Lanka Marine Services (LMS), a market leader in the Sri Lankan bunker supply industry, was SOFL’s first buyer, carrying out an offshore bunkering operation with the support of HIP. 

LMS then supplied the IMO 2020 compliant Very Low Sulphur fuel oil (VLSFO) to its client, crude oil tanker MV Suez Hans, which was on route to the Suez from Chennai.

MV Suez Hans refuelled at the Hambantota Port anchorage via bunker barge MV Kumana, chartered to LMS by HIP, to carry out the bunker operation.
