Lanka IOC PLC (Lanka IOC), the Sri Lankan subsidiary of India's largest oil refiner Indian Oil Corporation Ltd, says it is aiming to sell 10,000 mt of MGO and 380 CST by the end of 2015, Platts reports.

The company has already reportedly sold 4,000 mt of both 380 CST and MGO since its Trincomalee bunkering operations began on June 25, and is aiming to increase this to 6,000 mt during its second month of operations.

Lanka IOC is said to have a capacity for 20,000 mt of 380 CST and 6,000 mt of MGO in its Trincomalee storage tanks.

Lanka IOC is currently offering 380 CST product that it says it imports through a tender process from either Singapore, Fujairah, or India.

Both types can be set for delivery within the next one or two weeks, says Lanka IOC.

Last week, it was reported that Lanka IOC had commenced bunkering operations from its Trincomolee oil terminal, which is said to provide additional bunkering options to the vessels operating in Bay of Bengal.
