According to an article published in Manifold Times, Sinopec Anqing Petrochemical has joined the ranks of other Sinopec refineries around the country to implement a ‘100-day-plan’ for producing low-sulphur heavy marine fuel oil.

100-day-plan

On 24th June, it has joined the ranks of other Sinopec refineries around the country to implement a ‘100-day-plan’ for producing low-sulphur heavy marine fuel oil.

The mandate for Sinopec Anqing to implement the plan was received at the end of April 2020, and after much careful planning to execute not just the fuel blending process but also storage and transportation, the refinery said it was able to produce IMO 2020 compliant low-sulphur heavy marine fuel on 18, June.

Leveraging the high value of bunker fuel

As of Monday (22 June), 2,700 metric tonnes (mt) of low-sulphur heavy marine fuel oil was shipped out of Anqing refinery’s Pier 5.

Sinopec Anqing said the decision to produce low sulphur marine fuel was to leverage the high value of bunker fuel post IMO 2020 and to ease the pressure on its inventories.
