Sinopec Changling Petrochemical on Monday (29 June) said the refinery has started production of low-sulphur heavy marine fuel oil following the completion of its production unit in mid-June.

About 2,000 metric tonnes (mt) of the fuel was shipped out on Sunday (28 June).

“The project will significantly increase the refinery’s capacity towards the goal of producing 10 million mt of refined petroleum product,” said Xia Denggang, deputy chief engineer and production manager of Sinopec Changling.

Sinopec Changling joins a host of other Sinopec refineries to blend low-sulphur heavy marine fuel oil ever since the Chinese government announced its LSFO export in April.
