This course is focused on bunker fuel economics and will examine bunker fuel supply challenges posed by the implementation of IMO Annex VI low sulphur marine fuel specifications in 2020, covering refining & blending issues raised; refiners’ motivation to manufacture marine fuels and their response to implementation of Annex VI global sulphur specifications. It will consider what might happen in the medium term before 2020, as well as the impact of Exhaust Cleaning Systems both before & after 2020.

The course will also examine the CE Delft & Ensys studies with a view to identifying the strengths & weaknesses of each and will investigate the problem of making meaningful forecasts of pricing impacts of the 2020 change, and how these differ from common problems in petroleum price forecasting. The goal of the course is to improve skills to understand how the oil industry is likely to respond to IMO and how the new regulations will influence their businesses.
