The third shipment of Reformulated Blendstock for Oxygenate Blending (RBOB), weighed anchor at the quay of the Amuay Refinery of the Paraguaná Refinery Center (CRP, Spanish acronym), in the state of Falcón, abiding by the distribution program estimated by the refinery complex. The ship transports 240,000 barrels of the mix, which sum a total 720,000 barrels distributed to the international market since last May 12. 960,000 barrels are expected to be distributed this month as part of the PDVSA's commitment to hydrocarbons commercialization abroad. The RBOB formula consists on a mix of low steam pressure and low sulfur content components, which makes it a gasoline suitable to the international environmental specifications. From June on, PDVSA is expected to make seven shipments of the fuel monthly.
