Sinopec Qingdao Petrochemical on Thursday (2 July) said it has now entered a stage where it can scale production of low sulphur marine fuel oil (LSFO); the company has also successfully produced a record 110,00 metric tonnes (mt) of the fuel in June.
This is the highest ever recorded output in a single month and the feat was in recognition of the Chinese Commmunist Party’s 100th Anniversary, it said.
The goal to produce 100,000 mt of low sulphur marine fuel oil was put forward in June and all departments worked together to ensure that the target would be met without compromising the quality of the fuel along the way.
Sinopec Qingdao added that last year it produced 420,000 mt of low sulphur marine fuel and will continually strive to contribute towards Sinopec’s development of the low sulphur marine fuel market.
