OPIS Global Marine Fuels
Monitor daily marine fuel prices in a market responding to IMO2020 bunker fuel regulations. OPIS Global Marine Fuels delivers daily assessments of marine bulk and bunker fuel prices in key global ports, including calculated prices for the new 0.5% VLSFO.

Market Challenge
Effective January 1, 2020, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) will require ships to begin using 0.5% very low sulfur fuel oil (VLSFO) to reduce emissions. Complying with this regulation will be expensive, so ship owners, refiners, suppliers and other market players will need reliable pricing on affected fuel types to evaluate compliance options and make cost-effective operating decisions.

How We Help
