China independent refiners group applied for 2018 fuel export quotas

SHANGHAI, Nov 23 (Reuters) - A newly formed group of China’s independent oil refiners filed an application with the country’s Ministry of Commerce on Wednesday for fuel export quotas next year, a source with one of the group’s member companies said on Thursday.

A group of six independent refiners set up a $5 billion joint venture to compete with state-owned oil companies and privately owned chemical companies in September.

The government has excluded independent plants this year from exporting refined fuel, having granted quotas only to state refiners.
