Overcoming market turmoil in the European and Mediterranean bunker fuel market
This year’s challenge for the market is to manage volatility while investing in the shift to low and zero-carbon fuels for the next regulatory milestones. Bunker suppliers must continue to establish footholds in the alternative fuels space and shipping companies must continue to explore options away from conventional bunkers to cut their greenhouse gas emissions. Although the main market to talk about here remains LNG, Methanol is rapidly becoming another stand-out fuel. But these are just near-term solutions, how do longer-term hopes around Ammonia and Hydrogen fare?
At a time when HSFO gains market share and VLSFO prices increase, come together with the world’s leading bunker suppliers, refiners, traders, brokers, and ship owners/operators to explore the outlook for the European bunker market by reviewing bunker fuel supply and demand, pricing trends, shipping markets, the supply chain, alternative fuels and future regulatory milestones.
Key topics covered include:
• Reviewing bunker market trends and pricing in a 0.50% Sulfur world as new regulations emerge
• Addressing the outlook for the supply chain by reviewing the shipping market and providing the latest developments in European bunker buying and supplying
• Establishing which future fuels have potential in the bunker market specifically LNG and biofuels such as Ammonia and Methanol, hydrogen
• Looking ahead to the next wave of regulatory milestones, possible geopolitical scenarios & considering their impact on the European bunker market
