BPCL to export light diesel oil in rare move, industry sources say
SINGAPORE Bharat Petroleum Corp Ltd (BPCL.NS) will export a light diesel oil cargo from Kochi in a rare move, industry sources said on Tuesday.
The state-owned refiner sold 35,000 tonnes of the cargo, which has a sulphur content of 1.5 percent, to Vitol and is expected to load the cargo this week, the sources added.
The export will be temporary and will halt once a secondary unit at the refinery is started, one of the sources said.
