SINGAPORE - A major Middle East ship refuelling hub in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is expected to receive 1.16 million tonnes of Russian fuel oil this month, most of which could eventually be exported to South-east Asia, industry sources said.

Fujairah port is a key oil trading and storage hub in the region, which, like Singapore, serves as a critical transhipment node for refined petroleum products such as aviation fuels, petrol and heavy residue fuel oil that is either blended and used for bunkering or power generation in the region and South Asian countries such as Pakistan and Bangladesh.
