China Changjiang Bunker (Sinopec) & Aegian Marine Petroleum Network of Greece announce strategic alliance

Aegean Marine Petroleum Network Inc. announce it signed a Memorandum of Understanding to establish a strategic alliance with China Changjiang Bunker (Sinopec) Co. Ltd. (CCBC), a Chinese state-owned enterprise jointly owned by SINOPEC Sales Co., Ltd. and SINOTRANS & CSC.
