Repost: Indonesia is looking to expand opportunities for low sulphur marine fuel bunkering, says Basilio Dias Araujo, Deputy for Maritime Sovereignty and Energy, Coordinating Ministry for Maritime Affairs and Investment, Indonesia.
Araujo made the statement at the Seizing opportunities for developing countries in providing zero-carbon fuels to global shipping side event at COP26 on Wednesday (10 November).
The side event explores the opportunities for developing countries in producing and supplying zero-carbon marine fuels to ships in their ports.
During the event, Araujo said the Indonesian government has already issued a government regulation urging its national fleet to use low sulphur marine fuel.
Further, the country conducted its first VLSFO bunkering operation this year.
“Indonesia can now also produce low sulphur marine fuel,” he said.
“We have three terminals in Malacca Straits, and we have five to six ports in the Malacca Straits.
“We can provide low sulphur marine fuel to these ports and we’re looking for international cooperation in order to associate Indonesia in this term.”
