Argus Bunker Fuels 2021 virtual conference on FSU and Covid-19 market impact

25 Jan 2021

Global energy and commodity price reporting agency Argus Media on Wednesday (20 January) announced its Argus Bunker Fuels2021: FSU and Global Markets virtual conference will be held on Friday, 19 February. 

The industry transitioned to low-sulphur fuels to meet the International Maritime organisation’s (IMO) new requirements amid the global trade cut and decreasing trade flows. 

Further, falling marine fuel demand, caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, has led to a significant market transformation in seaports, noted Argus Media. 

The conference will then address questions such as: How did these factors influence the market structure? What was the impact on bunker fuel prices? How did supply/demand balance change? Alternative types of marine fuel, scrubbers, blending — which methods of meeting IMO 2020 requirements did the industry choose? What is the future of the bunker fuel market? What are the trends emerging in this segment?

The conference agenda includes: 

  • Results of introducing new IMO-2020 requirements, compliance with new legislation
  • Global bunker fuel market (Asia, northwest Europe, Mediterranean)
  • Russian bunker market: 2020 results, new types of fuel, pricing environment, offers and sales volumes. Industry taxation changes, peculiarities of accepting excise tax deduction
  • Alternative types of marine fuels. Russian LNG bunkering market formation prospects.
  • Regional bunker markets: the Caspian
  • Trade flow landscape changes. Port infrastructure development projects
  • River segment of the bunker market: Logistics infrastructure, sales volumes and pricing
  • Sulphur fuel oil: Profitability, prospects for using scrubbers
  • Methods of analysing new types of fuel
