If you missed the webinar entitled “Giving you the tools to manage IMO 2020” – replay is available! This was our inaugural joint webinar and contains presentations from three experts and live polls, and was expertly introduced and moderated by Jack Jordan, Editorial Lead, Bunker Fuel, EMEA at S&P Global Platts.
The webinar starts with Unni Einemo, Director and IMO Representative for the International Bunker Industry Association (IBIA), setting the scene with a bit of background on how the IMO has been working toward implementation of the 050% sulphur limit through regulations and guidelines. We then hear from John Morley, Managing Editor, EMEA Fuel Oil, S&P Global Platts and Eleni Pittalis, Managing Editor, EMEA Middle Distillates, S&P Global Platts about developments in the fuel oil and distillate markets as 1 January, 2020 approaches, and the evolution of the S&P Global Platts coverage of the emerging 0.50% sulphur compliant fuel oil grades. They also talk about the uptake of scrubbers and the surprising lack of interest in distillates as an alternative for compliance.
The final presentation explains how the 0.50% sulphur fuels will fit into the existing ISO 8217 marine fuel standard and points to where more advise is available on the anticipated IMO 2020-related fuel quality and compatibility issues.
Lasting an hour in total, the webinar is packed with practical information to help stakeholders.
