Marine bonded oil refers to the duty-free marine fuel oil sold to ships of international routes. In recent years, with the continuous rapid growth of the scale and cargo throughput of Weihai port and the rapid increase of foreign trade vessels in Weihai port, the demand for bonded oil in Weihai port has been increasing. Due to the lack of relevant oil supply service, a large number of arriving ships can only go to Zhoushan and other places or even more distant neighboring ports to replenish fuel oil after unloading, which to a certain extent increases the fuel oil transportation cost and restricts and affects the development of ship business in Weihai port.
Under the coordination of Shandong Weihai Port Foreign Vessel Supply Co., Ltd, Sinopec Shandong Zhoushan Petroleum Branch provided bonded oil supply for vessels arriving at Weihai Port by way of transshipment, which not only saved the navigation cost for the vessel company, but also promoted the expansion of the operation scale of bonded oil business enterprises. At the same time, the bonded oil business not only fills the gap of the bonded oil market in Weihai port, but also helps to improve the supporting facilities of the open port and enhance the popularity of Weihai open port by providing high-quality and inexpensive fuel for ships of international routes.
