Shell loads first cargo of low-sulphur fuel oil from Singapore refining site

SINGAPORE, Sept 19 (Reuters) - Royal Dutch Shell said on Thursday that it has loaded its first cargo of low-sulphur fuel oil (LSFO) from its Pulau Bukom refining site in Singapore.

This is the first time Shell has made LSFO from its own upstream crude, the company said.

The cargo will be blended to a finished product, which Shell will supply to bunker customers, enabling its customers to be prepared for the implementation of a new sulphur mandate by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) to be implemented from January, Shell said.
