CNPC sends diesel shipment to Brazil

12 June 2018

At the end of May, the China National Petroleum Corp (CNPC) sent an oil tanker with 60,000 tons of diesel to Brazil.

This is the first time a shipment of fuel has been shipped with this tonnage to the Americas.

The diesel was loaded at Bayuquan port, in China’s Liaoning province, by the Liaoyang Petrochemical Corp., a subsidiary of the CNPC refinery.

Chinaoil, the commercial unit of CNPC, has shipped about 1 million tons of crude oil to Latin America since 2015, in tankers with a capacity of just 40,000 tons of oil. (macauhub)
