China can’t get enough of the world’s crude oil, courtesy teapot refineries in Freight News 11/03/2019 China can’t get enough of the world’s crude oil. The only problem is, what to do with it? Saudi Arabian Oil Co., or Saudi Aramco, sharply raised prices for Asian shipments on Tuesday, lifting its premium on Arab Light crude by 50 cents to $1.20 a barrel above the Oman-Dubai benchmark. That’s a dramatically steeper increase than the 15 cents to 35 cents expected by traders, and it’s being driven by a bottomless thirst from Chinese refiners. China’s imports of crude have been surging since 2015, when Beijing started allowing its “teapot” refineries — small-scale independent operations that are mostly based in Shandong province — to buy from abroad. Teapots can largely explain the 50 per cent growth of inbound shipments since 2014. If you subtract their import quotas from China’s total crude...

Analysis of fuel samples

Analysis of fuel samples

posted on: Mar 11, 2019

Analysis of fuel samples in Marine Insurance P&I Club News 11/03/2019 2018 saw a huge increase in bunker quality disputes, starting around March/April with bunkers stemmed in Houston and gradually spreading to different regions and countries. It is also predicted that there may be issues regarding fuel quality due to blending in order to provide IMO 2020 Sulphur Cap compliant fuel. Whilst the purpose of this article is not to discuss either the Houston bunker problems or the 2020 Sulphur cap, inevitably, if there is a dispute as to the quality of the stemmed bunkers, it will be necessary to have those bunkers tested and analysed by a laboratory. The purpose of this article is to bring into focus the need for a proper fuel testing and analysis regime to be in place. Testing fuel samples on board is possible but there are limitations as to these findings which...

The port seeks to dredge its channel to allow large tankers like the Anne to load more fully at crude export terminals (file image) By MarEx 2019-03-08 According to consultancy Rystad Energy, the United States will soon export more oil and petroleum liquids than Saudi Arabia, upending a decades-long global trading pattern.  Thanks to rapidly-expanding production in the Permian Basin and other U.S. shale fields, along with the loading activity at Gulf Coast ports, American oil exports are on a rapid upward trend. The current crude export volume sits at about 3.5 million bpd, plus an additional five million bpd of natural gas liquids and refined products, for a total of about 8.5 million bpd....

Mesbah in the Dhaka half marathon 2018 A Marathoner amongst the Juldians We are proud of Mohammed Mesbahuddin 18th N Once again, Mesbah got qualified for the marathon in Tokyo. He waited for three years for this good news and finally the marathon organizers qualified Mesbah. Each year they select 27,000 runners worldwide out of 350,000 applicants and Mesbah is one of them. For physical preparation, he took a 4 months training program averaging 300 km running practice a month (consisting of aerobic, interval, hill repeat, tempo and long distance run at the week end). From Singapore 133 runners joined in Tokyo Marathon and he is the only Bangladeshi (from Singapore). Amazingly the spectators were jam packed both side of the 42 km running track cheering 38,000 runners ignoring the rain and cold weather.

Wärtsilä Modular Waterjets upgraded to deliver even greater efficiency in International Shipping News 08/03/2019 The technology group Wärtsilä announces that its LJX series of modular waterjets has been upgraded to deliver even greater efficiency with low levels of cavitation and underwater noise. Following this upgrading, the company’s modular waterjets will be redesignated as the Wärtsilä WXJ series. The development is based on a new axial pump design, which boosts performance with an increased thrust of as much as 3 percent, while the improved cavitation margins help reduce the environmental impact by lowering noise levels. This is very much in line with Wärtsilä’s Smart Marine vision to lead the maritime industry into a new era of ultra-high efficiency, improved safety, and a reduced environmental impact. The new WXJ pump, which is an integral part of the waterjet technology, has been tested extensively, both in computational fluid dynamic (CFD) simulation and...
