This new storage facility in Indonesia provides Clariant's Oil Services customers in the region with an improved, more sustainable supply chain for its Pour Point Depressants (PPD) and Drag Reducing Agent (DRA) products, in line with the specific requirements of the oil industry.
VLCCs have found favor with traders looking to store low sulfur components due, in part, to the vessels having onboard heating facilities - low sulfur components in Asia typically have a high pour point, which requires these materials to have heating facilities in the supply chain.
