South Korea halts ship refuelling at key ports as typhoon Hinnamor hits

Ship refuelling operations were temporarily halted at South Korea’s Busan and Ulsan ports on Tuesday after typhoon Hinnamnor hit the country’s southern region, trade sources said.

The halt in operations also paused spot premiums for low-sulphur bunker fuel offered at these ports this week at about $60 per tonne over Singapore fuel oil quotes, bunker fuel traders at South Korean companies said.
