Cargo in focus: Petroleum products
In collaboration with the cargo experts at CWA International, The Swedish Club has produced cargo advice to assist our members in the daily operation of their vessels.
This month, we wish to highlight the petroleum cargo advice. A variety of refined petroleum cargoes are transported via the shipping industry. These cargoes are classified by the hydrocarbon range of the products.
A common contamination found in refined petroleum products is the presence of particulates. This often leads to a failure in the appearance parameter which states that the cargo should be ‘clear and bright’ and typically leads to further cargo processing operations.
