In August, the Duque de Caxias Refinery (Reduc) concluded its first cabotage operation of Diesel S10, with the loading of 25,000m³ of fuel to the Guanabara Bay Waterway Terminal (TABG), from where the product was transported by ship to the Port of Paranaguá (PR).  Reduc has the capacity to produce 150,000m³ of Diesel S10 per month. Until June this year, the segregated internal logistics system for operating the Diesel S10 only allowed supply for distribution companies around the refinery.

With the Covid-19 pandemic and the reduction in demand for this derivative in the Rio de Janeiro region, the refinery carried out internal maneuvers and ballast conditioning in order to enable the product to flow through its interconnection with the TABG, where it has already cabotage and export operations for other products, such as fuel oil, 0.5% bunker, S10 gasoline, petrochemical naphtha, marine diesel, and S500, among others.

“New cabotage operations are already being programmed with the S10 produced at Reduc. With the current levels of local demand, Reduc is able to ship between 60-70,000m³ of the product per month ”, explains the sector manager for Production Programming at Reduc, Gabriel Amorim. The availability of this volume directly impacts the reduction of the imported volume to serve the national diesel market and increases Petrobras’ competitiveness vis-à-vis importing agents in the sector.
