RELIABLE HFO SUPPLIERS

Heavy Fuel Oil (HFO) is a fraction obtained from petroleum distillation, either as a distillate or a residue, and it’s blended with other components in order to achieve low sulphur content fuel. HFO powers industry, and is used by mines, power plants and manufacturing plants – without it, these facilities can’t function, with catastrophic consequences for individual businesses and the economy at large, which is why dependable HFO suppliers, who can reliably supply the fuel stock it needs, is so crucial to industry.

SA Oil is an HFO supplier to industry across Sub-Saharan Africa, and over the last decade and a half, we’ve forged relationships with some of the biggest entities in their respective industries. Our flexibility and agility in the market, not only in relation to effective pricing, but in relation to innovatively finding solutions for our partners and customers have made us a preferential fuel oil supplier to many of our longstanding customers.

In addition to HFO, which has a sulphur content of 3%, we also supply low sulphur fuel oil (LSFO), which has a sulphur content of just 1%.
