Specifically, the operation was conducted at Cartagena anchorage, and included the transfer of a total of 250 mts of VLSFO to the Geogas-owned LPG tanker, the 10,100 dwt Penelope M.

Moreover, the company aspires to acquire both VLSFO and MGO 0.1% products in Columbia, where the operation is conducted by two vessels and shore tanks in Cartagena.

We are pleased to see this first VLSFO supply in Colombia taking place well ahead of 1 January 2020. Now, our eyes are set on introducing low-sulphur fuel on key markets in Panama and in the U.S. as well
