(Sinochem Xingzhong), an affiliated company of Sinochem Group’s SBU of Energy successfully blended 45 thousand tons of bonded fuel oil of different tax file numbers.

This time, the two batches of bonded fuel oil of different tax file numbers were both from Malaysia. 45 thousand tons of No. 5 -7 bonded fuel oil were produced from the first business.
