Petrojam Reports Smooth Transition to New IMO Heavy Fuel Oil Specification

On January 01, 2020, the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) introduced new regulations to lower the sulphur cap on marine fuels, reducing the global limit from 3.5% to 0.50%. This is designed to significantly curb pollution produced by ships worldwide. Six months into the implementation of the new specifications for Very Low Sulphur Heavy Fuel Oil (VLSHFO), Petrojam Limited is reporting success in its transition to supplying this new grade of marine fuel. 

Petrojam’s ISO Coordinator, Clement Hamilton has the rapt attention of these Biotechnology students of the University of the West Indies, as he explains the tools, techniques and methodologies used to test petroleum products supplied by Petrojam Limited during a recent tour of its new state-of-the-art laboratory.

Petrojam operates the only fully equipped petroleum and ethanol laboratory in Jamaica. All products are rigorously tested to ensure they meet industry standards.
