The expanded scope of cooperation is poised to explore new dimensions of collaboration, with a focus on areas like Castrol marine lubricants and hydrocarbons transportation, offshore construction, and potential ventures in methanol supply for bunkering and the offshore wind supply chain.

Prior to the signing ceremony, representatives from both parties engaged in a comprehensive discussion, reviewing the current state of cooperation and charting a course for future collaboration. The signed MoU symbolizes a commitment to further deepen ties and explore innovative avenues that align with the evolving landscape of the energy industry. As global players, COSCO SHIPPING and bp’s strengthened partnership is expected to contribute significantly to the sustainable growth and development of the energy sector.
