ExxonMobil has reported the successful delivery of two commercial bio-based marine fuel oil bunkering operations in the Port of Singapore.
The bunker operations took place on 13 August 2022 and 27 September 2022, ExxonMobil said today (15 November).
PAPUA, chartered by Papua New Guinea Liquefied Natural Gas Global Company LDC (PNG LNG), received ExxonMobil’s marine biofuel via ship-to-ship transfer in Singapore waters as part of the two deliveries. The bio-based marine fuel oil was consumed during the vessel’s voyages in the Asia Pacific region.
The marine biofuel used was a 0.50% sulphur residual-based fuel (VLSFO) processed with up to 25% waste-based fatty acid methyl esters (FAME).
‘This successful bunkering operation of commercial bio-based marine fuels is an important step as ExxonMobil continues to investigate several potentially viable alternatives to conventional fuel formulations,’ the company said.
ExxonMobil says it is committed to advancing lower-emission energy solutions, with plans to produce 200,000 barrels per day of lower-emission fuels by 2030.
As previously reported, last month, ExxonMobil reported it had completed a bunker delivery of bio-based marine fuel oil to Tata NYK Shipping’s MV Sagar Moti in Singapore in September.
