ADNOC Sends First Calcined Coke Shipment to China

ADNOC Logistics & Services-chartered cargo ship Lucky Ocho is en route to Yantai, China, with a maiden load of 10,500 tons of UAE-produced calcined coke.

The first shipment was loaded by ADNOC Refining, a subsidiary of the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), and is set to arrive in China by the end of April 2019.

ADNOC said the milestone was part of the company’s effort to reduce production of high-sulfur fuel oil (or “residue oil”).

When the International Marine Organization’s (IMO) 2020 regulation was first proposed, the company embraced the goal of reducing the sulfur content contained in marine fuels from 3.5 percent to 0.5 percent. In September 2018, ADNOC commissioned the multi-billion-dollar Carbon Black and Delayed Coker unit. The unit allows ADNOC to extract the maximum value from sulfur-heavy ‘bottom-of-the-barrel’ oils and slurry.

“This milestone represents a significant step towards being a refining business capable of producing “zero-fuel oil”,” Jasem Al Sayegh, CEO of ADNOC Refining, said.

“ADNOC will continue to invest in an effort to broaden our product offering amidst evolving market conditions, ensuring we reduce our environmental footprint and maintain IMO-compliance leading up to 2020 and beyond.”
