How has IMO2020 changed the bunker landscape?
Assessing the Middle East supply chain in a 0.5% sulfur world
Hear the option and experience of regional leaders as they discuss their experiences of the sulfur cap so far. How is the transition going? What challenges remain? Can we expect further development in supply of 0.5% sulfur fuels? And what is the future of Fuel Oil?

What challenges does the sector face in the coming decade?
Look beyond the cap
With margins, credit, compatibility and quality becoming even more of an issue? How will the industry evolve over the coming years? Will we see consolidation, or even bankruptcies? How long will compatibility issues remain, and what is being done to avoid them?

How is shipping adapting?
Exploring drivers of short- and long-term change
Freight rates and routes are driven by a range of factors from weather to trade disputes. How are these influencing supply chains and creating opportunity and challenges for market participants in bunker fuel?

What is the outlook for alternative fuels and on-board abatement in the region?

Looking ahead to future regulatory constraints
With the cap in place, when will the market need to prepare for the IMO’s plan to reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG0 emissions by 2030 and 2050? How prepared is the Middle East to deliver? What needs to be accomplished in order to meet the targets?

An exciting venue, site visit and workshops to be announced soon.
