The delivery of Shell Marine Fuel Oil (MFO) 180 at the Port of Shanghai to its customer Wan Hai, is the result of a Marine Fuels Supply Agreement signed between China Marine Bunker PetroChina Co. Ltd (Chimbusco) and Shell Marine Products Limited (Shell). The two companies have cooperated extensively over the recent months to ensure that operations match Shell's standards for safety and operations.

Ms Loh Wai Kiew, VP Shell Marine Products, said: "We are delighted to offer our international customers bulk fuels for the first time in Shanghai and have selected Chimbusco as our collaborative partner in this venture. The Eastern ports are expected to have strong growth for the marine industry in the coming years and Shell prides itself in being ahead for our customers. We are focussed on strategic growth in alignment with our customer's required footprint for network of global ports and thus Shanghai fits perfectly for our customers bunkering requirements."

Shell and Chimbusco have been working together since 1980 and this agreement demonstrates another key development in the close relationship between the two companies. Operations for the bulk supply of fuel oil will initially commence at the Port of Shanghai and include other Chinese ports in due course.

Managing Director Mr Fu Bin of Chimbusco said: "Chimbusco and Shell have been cooperating closely for some time in the supply of marine lubricants at ports across China. To supply marine bunkers to Shell's customers in Shanghai, following International Bunkering Procedure standards, is the beginning of further expanding our existing business with them. We are as committed as ever to providing a safe, convenient and reliable service to our global customers and their vessels."

Customer Wan Hai said: "Throughout this bulk delivery of Shell MFO 180 in Shanghai to our vessel Hon Chun, we have seen Shell reinforce the first class standard we receive from them in other ports around the world. We are looking forward to Shell extending this service to other ports in China."

China and the region are important focus areas for Shell. Last year, Shell Bitumen acquired Koch Material China, a bitumen manufacturing and marketing business. This more than doubled the size of The Shell Group's Bitumen business in China. This was followed by The Shell Group's acquisition of Tongyi, one of China's leading independent lubricant companies, making Shell the leading international energy company marketing lubricants in China.

Shell Marine Products will supply Gas Oil, MFO 180 and MFO 380 at the Port of Shanghai.
