Argus IMO 0.5%S fuel assessments

Argus IMO 0.5% fuel oil assessment

As the shipping industry switches to low sulphur marine fuels, market dynamics are changing, and new relationships are emerging. High-sulphur fuel oil is becoming disconnected from the delivered bunker market, and new reference prices are emerging.

To manage your risk exposure, bunker prices at regional hubs are required. These provide more relevant pricing that is reflective of local market dynamics.
