Delivery for the first batch of low-sulphur light marine fuel has come from Chinese downstream giant, Sinopec. The first batch of 6,800 tonnes of the IMO-standardized fuel came from Sinopec’s Shanghai refinery. Starting in 2020, IMO will forbid ships running on fuel oil, with sulphur content above 0.5%. The only exception to this rule will be the ships retrofitted with exhaust “scrubbers” to clean sulphur emissions.
