LR FOBAS introduces new on-line bunker fuel quality tool

09 Apr 2019

The Lloyd’s Register Fuel Oil Bunkering Analysis and Advisory Service (FOBAS) on Monday (8 April) introduced a new on-line bunker fuel quality tool to assist marine fuel buyers in making planning and purchasing decisions:

Lloyd's Register FOBAS is delighted to announce that we have a new on-line tool available for our FOBAS clients regarding fuels quality decisions.

The tool is designed to help our clients analyse, compare, and view test data based on ports, suppliers, dates, fuel types, and of course (in this day and age) sulphur. The design is intentionally simple, and is now available on your portal at www.lrgmt.com via the login to stats tool button on your home page and includes a “help” section which includes instructions and guidance on how to use the new app. This tool will enable you to:

  • View information from the past three months for any port / supplier combination graphically with the ability to look at the individual results by test parameter. Limits and averages are added to assist in easy visual analysis of the data.
  • Save your port / supplier combination for later reference. For each port / supplier combination selected, you have the option to add it to a list which can contain as many variations as you want. This list is stored on our servers so the next time you log in you can easily pick back up on where you left off.
  • Download data from the past three months for any port / supplier combination. This can be downloaded in either CSV or XLSX formats.
  • Compare up to four port / supplier combinations and view the comparison results graphically using two different charting techniques presented side by side in order to help you home in on the specific information you’re looking for.
  • Download a details PDF of your compared port / supplier combinations.

One very important function within our facility is the ability to focus on 2020 compliant fuel and identify ports/ that have 0.5% sulphur compliant fuels as and when they become more available through 2019 so the data will increasingly build. This is being further supported by many Research and Development projects and “behind the scenes” testing work.

We are confident this will be a great support and should you need anything more or require information from our teams please don’t hesitate to contact us directly on fobas@lr.org or contact your local FOBAS team.

All staff at FOBAS look forward to further supporting our clients into 2020.
