QUANG NGAI (VNS) — The single-point mooring (SPM) system at Dung Quat refinery in the south central province of Quang Ngai received a 150,000-tonne oil tanker last Saturday, the largest of the 398 cargo vessels the system has served since it opened five years ago.
The tanker brought one million barrels of crude oil imported from Azerbaijan for processing at Dung Quat.
This is also the first oil tanker the SPM system has received after a US$320,000 upgrade several months ago, which allows it to receive oil tankers of up to 150,000 tonnes. Previously it could only accommodate 100,000-tonne tankers. — vns
