Genoil Inc - a developer of sulphur removal technology which converts heavy or sour crude oil into low-sulphur fuel oil (LSFO) - has announced the successful production of 2020-compliant LSFO for a maritime client at its feedstock processing facility in Bashkortostan, Russia.

The production was carried out for an unnamed shipping firm based in Norway that is said to operate a topping plant adjacent to a tank terminal in Rotterdam.

Using its proprietary Genoil Hydroconversion Upgrading (GHU) technology, Canada-based Genoil says it produced LSFO with a sulphur content of 0.39 percent using a feedstock of RMG 380 high-sulphur fuel oil (HSFO) containing refinery residues and cracked material.

The 0.39 percent level is within the limit permitted by the IMO's upcoming 0.5 percent global sulphur cap on marine fuel in 2020.

To verify the LSFO production results, additional demonstration runs are planned in Russia, one of which is said to be for "a leading provider of compliance, consultancy service and classification to the marine industry".

Genoil says another test is due to be performed for an unnamed national oil company that produces more than a million barrels of heavy oil per day.

Dr. Raushan Telyashev, Senior Vice President of Genoil, remarked: "The Genoil GHU Technology is robust enough to cope with such difficult cracked materials and residues such as fuel oil. We now have proven GHU technology can process a wider range of different feedstocks for many different GHU applications."
