On July 22, 2014, at Shui Donggang port, in Maoming city, Guangdong province, China, a vessel loaded with 3,800 tons of high quality asphalt was leaving for Thailand. This was for the very first time that the high quality asphalt produced by Sinopec Maoming Petrochemical exported to the Thailand market, which would provide more chances for Maoming’s asphalt into the market in South East Asia.
By the end of May,2014, an accumulated 4000 tonnes of SINOPEC modified asphalt had been piled on the United Arab Emirates (UAE) Sharjah International Airport. The technology and brand output strategy of Sinopec Refinery Product Sales Company appears to be paying off.
Sharjah Airport project, to which Sinopec SBS modified asphalt first applied in the Middle East, will greatly help expand the international asphalt market for Sinopec.
