Platts European Bunker Fuel Conference at the Mainport Hotel Rotterdam

Why attend?

Discuss the future 0.5% sulphur cap’s implementation

The date has been set for the global 0.5% sulphur cap of 2020. Hear from the leaders of industry as they tackle the uncertainty of the journey ahead; Will there be the distillate to meet demand? What will fluctuations in oil price mean? Is this the end for residual? How can it be enforced?

Identify the challenges ahead as the oil price increases

The low oil price certainly reduced the financial implication for the shipping industry over the past 2 years, but as the price increases, what does this mean for the whole supply chain. Will availability of credit decline with an increase in the oil price; if so how do all parties keep operating?

Explore the outlook for scrubbers and alternative fuels

Now the date has been set, ship owners can look ahead to see what is the most viable option. Will the uptake in scrubbers keep fuel oil on the table? What future will alternative fuels have in the fuels mix, when will we see mass adoption?
