Import licensing requirement

In July 2014, the Chinese government added 30 non-state firms to the roster of those allowed to import fuel oil for refining (see below for full list).

Chinese policy dictates that non-state importers must acquire this permission to carry out any fuel oil imports, ensuring state-run firms have an advantage.

In order to qualify for these licenses, independent firms must satisfy various conditions, mainly relating to the size of the firm, e.g. it must have a credit line of USD 20m (specifically USD, not Chinese RMB) and be prepared to import a minimum of 50,000 tons of fuel oil per year.

The total non-state national fuel oil import quota is 16.2m tonnes.
