QATARGAS LNG FLEET TO RUN ON VERY LOW SULFUR FUEL OIL FROM RAS LAFFAN
10/28/2019 12:00:00 AM

Qatar Petroleum said that the VLSFO marine fuel offering was initiated in advance of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) 2020 regulation for a 0.50 percent global sulfur limit for marine fuels, which will come into effect January 1, 2020.

QP, in conjunction with Qatar Fuel, initiated bunkering services in Qatar in June 2017 with the importation of its maiden HFO cargo in order to cater to the bunkering needs of both Qatargas’ LNG fleet and other vessels calling to Ras Laffan and the region.

From June 2017 through August 2019, Qatar Petroleum supplied over 1.5 million tons of marine fuel to Ras Laffan, which allows the further servicing for marine fuel at the port and other ports in Qatar.

QP invited all vessel owners and operators seeking IMO 2020 compliant VLSFO to use the services available at the port and other ports in the state whenever vessels pass by any of Qatar’s ports.

Thanks
