Argus expands locations for 0.5% sulphur bunker fuel assessment
Global energy and commodity price reporting agency Argus Media on Monday launched five new price assessments for marine fuel markets at several bunkering locations, including Rotterdam, New York and the US Gulf coast.
These assessments are for marine fuel that complies with the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) regulation that will reduce the allowable sulphur content in marine fuels to 0.5% from 3.5% from 1 January 2020.
The new price assessments are as follows:
- 0.5% sulphur fuel oil in northwest Europe
- 0.5% sulphur marine gasoil in northwest Europe
- 0.5% sulphur fuel oil at New York Harbor
- 0.5% sulphur marine gasoil at New York Harbor
- 0.5% sulphur fuel oil at the US Gulf coast
“To comply, the market is already pursuing new benchmarks and new pricing tools that we now provide. With decades of experience in pricing these markets, Argus is uniquely qualified and well placed to provide the marine fuels industry with the most robust pricing solutions.”
The development expands on Argus' September launch of the industry's first IMO-compliant 0.5% sulphur marine fuel price in Singapore.
Argus’ coverage of traded 380 centistokes (cSt) grade and low sulphur marine gas oil (LS MGO) at Singapore reached a new milestone on Friday.
