The problem oil frequently occurs, Sinopec suspends 93 # wholesale to push up the price
Sinopec Guangdong 93 # gasoline wholesale price was directly increased by more than 400 yuan due to the suspension of the batch or high price of 93 # gasoline After Yueyang Sinopec's "problem oil" and Wenzhou Sinopec's "water mixed oil", yesterday, there was another media exposure of CNPC's "problem oil" in Baotou (10.77, -0.06, -0.55%). According to the industry, the "problem gasoline" incident has led to Sinopec's strict control over external procurement, resulting in a shortage of resources in the system, and Sinopec's gasoline in Guangdong cities has been suspended from batch and kept at zero or sold at high prices.

After Yueyang Sinopec's "problem oil" and Wenzhou Sinopec's "water mixed oil", yesterday, there was another media exposure of CNPC's "problem oil" in Baotou (10.77, -0.06, -0.55%). According to the industry, the "problem gasoline" incident has led to Sinopec's strict control over external procurement, resulting in a shortage of resources in the system, and Sinopec's gasoline in Guangdong cities has been suspended from batch and kept at zero or sold at high prices.
At the same time, the gasoline price of Guangdong Petrochemical Company unexpectedly soared, and the wholesale price directly rose to the maximum price.
After Yueyang Sinopec's "problem oil" and Wenzhou Sinopec's "water mixed oil", yesterday, the media broke out the "problem oil" of CNPC Baotou.
Some media quoted consumers as saying that after refueling at the gas station in Baotou, PetroChina, the car was abnormal, and the exhaust pipe was emitting blue smoke and red water. In response, PetroChina said that each batch of oil was qualified after testing, and the cause of the problem was still under verification.
Unknown metal additive?
Why can the problem oil that has an impact on the car be sold through testing? A senior person in Guangdong's oil and gas industry told our reporter yesterday that it may be related to the backward gasoline detection standards.
In the Yueyang problem oil incident, the maintenance personnel who repaired the damaged vehicle once said, "The oil is up to standard after testing, and the cause of the problem may be caused by a metal additive, but this indicator is not within the scope of the national test standard!"
According to the reporter, there are three detection standards for vehicle fuel, namely GB17930-1999 Unleaded Gasoline for Vehicles, GB252-2000 Light Diesel Fuel and GB/T19147-2003 Diesel Fuel for Vehicles. The "national standard" of gasoline has been used for 12 years!
A salesperson at the Guangzhou Racecourse Auto City told our reporter yesterday, "Some foreign auto manufacturers often cancel some advanced technologies after entering China's local production because of the poor quality of domestic fuel."
Sinopec suspended 93 # wholesale
"Sinopec currently implements the principle of" three no-picking ", and cannot determine the no-picking of the oil production enterprises; the no-picking of the oil source is three levels up, and the production enterprises are not within the scope of the specified catalog; the no-picking of the suppliers who do not provide the qualified quality inspection report," Yao Daming, the head of the oil department of the Guangdong Oil and Gas Chamber of Commerce, told this newspaper, "That is why the resources in the system have been strained, and some regions have stopped the batch of gasoline to maintain zero or pushed up the listing price."
For example, in the Guangdong market, Sinopec implemented strict control on external production at the end of last month, resulting in a sharp decrease in the amount of gasoline resources flowing into the system. Since June, the temperature in Guangdong has soared rapidly, and the market expects that the demand for gasoline will gradually rise. Due to the uncertain supply of gasoline resources at the later stage, Sinopec in Guangdong cities has adopted the strategy of suspending the wholesale of 93 # gasoline or selling it at a high price to ensure the supply of retail gas stations.
The monitoring data released by Jinyin Island, a domestic e-commerce platform for bulk products, shortly after the occurrence of the problem oil, showed that "the gasoline price of Guangdong Petrochemical Company unexpectedly rose sharply, and was directly adjusted back to the wholesale price, and the 93 # gasoline of the third grade was directly raised from 9500 yuan to 9924 yuan/ton."
At present, the maximum wholesale price of 93 # gasoline is 9924 yuan/ton. Previously, due to the sharp drop in the international crude oil price, the difference between the wholesale price of gasoline in Guangdong and the maximum wholesale price has been 500 to 700 yuan.
Guangdong Sinopec responded:
Guangdong Oil Quality
The reporter contacted the relevant person in charge of Guangdong Petrochemical recently. The person said that the oil products supplied in Guangdong are different from those in other places. Especially in Guangzhou, it is the fourth oil product in Guangdong, which is different from the third oil product in other places.
When the reporter asked whether all the gasoline and diesel in Guangzhou were supplied by Guangzhou Petrochemical, the person in charge said that the oil in Guangzhou was not from a refinery of Guangzhou Petrochemical.
The person said that there was no problem with the quality of Guangdong's oil products. She suggested that the reporter go to the 4S store to investigate. "If the 4S store did not focus on the problem of car failure, it means that there would be no problem with the oil products."
Check the "problem oil"
Don't cause new oil shortage
It is reported that after all the products produced by Sinopec are supplied to its own channels, 15% of them need to be purchased from outside. After the problem oil and water-mixed oil are exposed, Sinopec will strictly limit the quantity of oil products to be purchased from outside, and the products produced by Sinopec will certainly fully supply its own gas stations, resulting in a sudden tightening of domestic product oil supply.
At present, Sinopec has reorganized the list of suppliers in various regions. For example, more than 20 Shandong refineries were included in Sinopec's procurement list, but now they have been reduced by half. According to the data released by Treasure Island, at present, PetroChina and Sinopec have reduced the production of refined oil, resulting in a significant shortage of operating rates in these local refineries, with only about 30% operating rates in some regions.
The domestic increase in electricity prices has led to a renewed enthusiasm for diesel power generation. Zhong Jian, an analyst at Xiwang Energy, estimated that the cumulative increase in diesel consumption will be more than 2 million tons based on the peak summer electricity consumption of about 4 months this summer.
Many industry experts have warned the two giants not to cause a new round of oil shortage while checking the "problem oil".
