Cepsa starts selling 0.1% ULSFO in Algeciras Bay

20 Feb 2017 07:57 GMT

Spanish firm is first in the Strait of Gibraltar to offer 2020-compatible ULSFO.



Cepsa has confirmed that it has started to commercialize 0.1 percent ultra-low-sulphur fuel oil (ULSFO) in Algeciras Bay.

The Spanish firm is the first supplier in the Strait of Gibraltar to offer 0.1 percent ULSFO, which will meet upcoming global fuel regulations in January 2020.

In a statement, Cepsa explained that its ULSFO complies with ISO's RMD 80 parameters, with the added benefit of having a maximum sulphur content of 0.1 percent.

Cepsa's 0.1 percent ULSFO is also compatible with MGO, and will be sold at a discount on the company's marine gas oil (MGO) price.

"Cepsa's leadership in the Strait of Gibraltar is reinforced being the first bunker supplier to have this product available in this location," Cepsa said.

The Spanish supplier started to commercialize 0.1 percent ULSFO in Algeciras Bay on 1st February.

In October, Bunker Index reported that Cepsa was the first supplier in the Strait of Gibraltar to install mass flow meters (MFMs) on its barges, with the company opting to install Promass flow meters developed by the Swiss manufacturer Endress+Hauser AG.

Also in Gibraltar, Cepsa has been involved in a project with Quadrise and shipping firm Maersk to trial the supply of MSAR emulsion fuel to Maersk ships from Cepsa's Gibraltar-San Roque refinery.
