Sinopec Shengli Oilfield Co on Thursday (10 September) said it has established a long-term partnership with Sinopec Qingdao Petrochemical to guarantee the supply of raw materials to Qingdao Petrochemical to blend low-sulphur bunker fuel.
Shengli Oilfield said it has overcome the covid-19 epidemic prevention and control with safety procedures, and has been supplying low-sulfur crude oil to Qingdao Petrochemical since March, 2020.
In order to further improve the supply capacity of low-sulphur heavy crude oil, Shengli Oilfield said it has made major adjustments to the crude oil storage and transportation system to ensure that the low-sulphur crude oil can be transported directly to the Dongying crude oil depot.
Shengli Oilfield added that it is looking to establish a long-term partnership with Qingdao Petrochemical, and jointly contribute to Sinopec’s vision of being an industry leader for clean fuels.
