China: VLSFO bunker exports down 2% on year in August, show GAC data

Repost: China’s exports of very low-sulphur fuel oil (VLSFO) decreased 2% in August on year, according to General Administration of Customs data quoted by Reuters on Monday (20 September).

VLSFO exports in August were at 1.59 million metric tonnes (mt), lower than 1.77 million mt in July.

Exports of VLSFO increased 42% to 13.12 million mt from January up to August 2021, when compared to the prior corresponding year.

China’s bonded bunker fuel sales dropped slightly to 1.54 mln mt in July, JLC data showed.

In July, the local government at Zhoushan prohibited the bonded bunkering operation at night amid the big events of CPC, which directly drove down the bunkering sales.
