Malaysia implemented Euro 4M for 97 RON gasoline at retail stations in September 2015.

The country has plans to implement Euro 5-compliant fuels for 95 RON and 97 RON gasoline on September 1, 2025, and Euro 5 diesel on September 1, 2020, according to the country's clean fuels road-map, Platts reported earlier.

The Euro 4M specifications is for both gasoline and diesel limit sulfur at 50 ppm, down from Malaysia's current standard of 500 ppm. For gasoline, the maximum benzene level will be lowered to 3.5% from the current 5%, while the maximum limit for Reid Vapor Pressure will be reduced to 65 kPa from the current 70 kPa.

The Refinery and Petrochemical Integrated Development project, or RAPID, which received its first crude oil cargo in September, will be able to produce Euro 5 gasoline and diesel.

The 300,000 b/d refinery was designed to produce 98,000 b/d gasoline, or a yield of about 33%, 88,000 b/d of gasoil, 28,000 b/d of Jet A1, and 5,000 b/d of fuel oil.
