Guangdong-based Sinopec Guangzhou Petrochemical on Monday (16 March) announced its first delivery of RMG 180 grade marine fuel oil to the storage tank at Sinopec Fuel Oil Sales Co via pipeline, according to Sinopec News Network, the company’s official news agency.
1,600 metric tonnes (mt) of bunker fuel was delivered along a 10.5 kilometre heated pipeline, as the fuel needs to be kept at 80 degrees celsius throughout the blending and transportation process, it said.
The marine fuel oil at Guangzhou refinery was mixed with residual oil and diesel in order to meet international regulations, it said.
In order to produce quality low sulphur marine fuel on schedule, Sinopec Guangzhou had to make use of all its available resources, such as by modifying existing asphalt concrete production pipelines, relevant pumps and transportation modes.
The pipeline modifications and fuel blending were carried out during the COVID-19 outbreak, so extra caution had to be applied to ensure everyone’s safety.
