The following article published by Manifold Times on 2 August was sourced from China’s domestic market through a local correspondent. An online translation service was used in the production of the current editorial piece:

Sinopec Zhejiang Zhoushan Petroleum Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Sinopec Group, has recently completed a bonded bunkering operation to the Panama-flagged vessel Ocean Star 86.

About 150 metric tonnes (mt) of bonded light marine diesel oil was delivered to the reefer vessel in less than two hours, said Cheng Jing, Executive Deputy General Manager of Sinopec Zhejiang Zhoushan Petroleum Co., Ltd.

He noted six out of seven international sea routes in China passing through Zhoushan waters with more than 20,000 international ships plying through the area every year. 

Most of the bonded bunker fuel operations were carried out in Singapore while some were performed in Hong Kong or South Korea, according to Cheng Jing.

"But in recent years, Ningbo Zhoushan Port has become the world's first large port with a cargo of more than 1 billion mt, and the adjacent port is Shanghai Port, the world's largest container hub port. Our city already has the advantageous conditions to build a bonded fuel oil supply centre in Northeast Asia,” he said. 

Sinopec Zhejiang Zhoushan Petroleum Co., Ltd. operates an independent bonded oil depot in Putuo District, Zhoushan City, Zhejiang Province, with nine bonded tanks with a total capacity of 30,600 cubic metres. 

In the first half of this year, the company's bonded fuel oil supply business volume reached 4.958 million mt, accounting for 47% of the domestic market.

Titan completes first STS LNG bunkering operation in Cuxhaven

LNG bunker fuel supplier Titan on Thursday (11 July) said it completed the first-ever LNG bunkering operation by ship in the port of Cuxhaven.

Titan’s bunker vessel Optimus successfully delivered LNG to dredger Vox Ariane operated by its long-term client Van Oord. 

“Our ship-to-ship bunkering in Cuxhaven represents a pioneering step in the region's LNG infrastructure development, as the port had previously only seen LNG operations conducted via truck and currently only permits LNG bunkering at one berth,” it said in a social media post. 

“LNG infrastructure development is part of a broader trend, with more ports across Germany adopting LNG operations to support shipping’s clean fuels transition.”

Titan added the improved LNG bunkering capabilities in Cuxhaven, a Niedersachsen Ports GmbH & Co. KG port, also opened up the pathway to maritime decarbonisation via liquified biomethane (LBM) and then renewable e-methane going forward.

UECC “Auto Achieve” receives first LNG bunker fuel delivery by barge in home country

Norwegian roll-on/roll-off shipping line United European Car Carriers (UECC) on Wednesday (10 July) said it received the first ever supply of LNG by barge to their multi-fuel LNG battery hybrid car carrier Auto Achieve in the Port of Drammen on 4 July.

The firm said this was the first time UECC received LNG by barge to any of their vessels in their home country Norway. 

“We also believe that it was the first time LNG was delivered by barge to any vessel in Drammen, and most likely the entire Oslofjord,” UECC said in a social media post.

The LNG was supplied by the Molgas Energy Holding vessel Pioneer Knutsen, owned by Knutsen Group OAS.

“UECC is very pleased to see the expansion of the LNG barge network in Norway,” it said.
