The first such supply was made on 26th October 2019 to the LPG tanker Berlian Ekuator at Kandla port.

ICO has made available LSFO 0.5% S grade marine fuel for immediate deliveries at Kandla and Kochi ports. Bunker fuel deliveries at other Indian ports Mumbai, Mangalore, Tuticorin, Chennai, Visakhapatnam, Paradip and Haldia shall start by mid-November 2019.
