This virtual training course comprising 2 live instructor-led sessions, focuses on managing VLSFO and ULSMGO, its usage and handling, examining problems that vessels have encountered, offering lessons to be learnt and the most practical mitigating measures for potential risks. It will also look at understanding fuel analysis and examine critical test parameters that matter the most. A special session on 2030 IMO greenhouse gas emissions will look at its impact on the shipping industry in terms of improving fuel efficiency through ship design and adoption of less pollutive fuels such as LNG/LPG or alternative fuels such as hydrogen, ammonia and biofuels.
Efficient fuel management and safe fuel handling are critical and important to ensure fuel reliability & compliance under IMO’s 2020 sulphur regulations. Significant growth in the use of distillate and non-distillate compliant fuels recently, has brought to fore potential risks in the use of these fuels related to cold-flow properties, stability, contamination, cat-fines, lubricity, viscosity, density, ignition, combustion quality & more. Attend this course to examine the critical risks and develop management strategies to address these problem areas.
Held in Conjunction with the 2021 Fujairah Bunkering Week
PLUS! A Case Study on the challenges of using VLSFO on ships
Module 1: VLSFO Challenges & Lessons Learnt
Module 2: ULSMGO Usage, Handling & Challenges
The course will be taught live via a video conferencing platform, covering a combination of theoretical and practical applications. The course instructor will adopt an interactive approach which will encourage active participation, delegate engagement and contribution through live sharing of views and experiences. A role play will simulate real life scenario challenges in portraying or simulating the participant’s working environment.
The workshop is designed for:-
Vice President, Miyabi Industries, Singapore
William Tan has had more than 23 years in the marine industry. Trained in Environmental Engineering with a Masters’ Degree in International Business, he worked with DNV Petroleum Services from 1994 to 1999, marketing fuel testing and bunker services to the Japanese, Korean and South East Asian Market; he founded Marine Fuel Consultants International Pte Ltd in the year 2000 with partners, providing services of fuel quality management and claims handling; in 2002, he joined Miyabi Industries Pte Ltd as Vice-President and its Principal Consultant. The company is an Engineering and Consultancy firm specializing in fuel, lubricants, risk assessments, loss control and claims recovery to the bunkering and shipping community. He was also the program leader and course lecturer for the largely successful Bunkering Disputes courses since 2002 (3 separate editions) with more than 600 participants to date, as well several other titles including Bunker Operations, Ship Safety, Pollution & Low Sulphur Usage, Understanding Bunker Measurement and Practical Approaches to Managing 2020 Bunker Fuels.
William is well known within the bunkering industry from Europe, to Middle East, to Asia. His expertise is much sought after by the industry as an expert witness, technical consultant, mediator and arbitrator on bunker dispute cases.
"I got to know suppliers’ & shipowners’ perspectives."
"Good case studies, lecturer able to provide many scenarios to make you think."
"I was able to gather useful information on the requirements and how the changes affect fuel oil testing intermediaries."
"Very knowledgeable session."
"I find it useful for the worldwide distillate usage; so that suppliers like us can have first hand information for compliance."

In 2019 the global shipping fleet used about 4 million barrels a day of high sulphur bunker fuel. In 2020 with the new sulphur cap regulations, a substantial amount of this has been replaced by marine diesel (also known as marine gasoil). The marine diesel market is quite different from that for bunker fuel. It is intricately linked to the international market for diesel and other middle distillates and is therefore influenced by different marketing drivers. Both the absolute price and the price volatility of diesel are higher than for heavy fuel oil but there are well-tested techniques to help manage the risks involved.
This 2-day workshop provides delegates with an introduction to oil trading, particularly the very large international middle distillate market, and the concept of managing the new price risks using futures and swaps.
21 – 22 March 2021
The process of having to source for compliant fuels by ship owners and operators has made bunker procurement the heart of shipping companies’ strategies and managing energy procurement, a top priority for now and in the future. With the onset of Covid-19, strategic supply chain planning and management has become an imperative for bunker players, with the focus of buyers being not only on fuel price but also, fuel availability.
This virtual training course focuses on examining effective and efficient fuel procurement strategies to deliver a vessel with the fuel it needs to run itself. The course will examine the entire fuel and lubricants procurement process including transitions and shifts in the last 5 years covering:-
2-Day Virtual Forum
23 – 24 March 2021
The 12th Fujairah Bunkering & Fuel Oil Forum 2021, hosted by the Government of Fujairah & Port of Fujairah, and supported by the Fujairah Oil Industry Zone (FOIZ), will be held as a virtual event from 23 – 24 March 2021.
The virtual event will support the global FUJCON community, meeting annually from over 35 countries, with the twin pillars of information exchange and networking, to stay connected until FUJCON re-convenes physically.
The Virtual FUJCON 2021 will bring key decision makers, thought leaders and marine experts who will be sharing views, analysis and insights on the global bunker and fuel oil market developments, & explore the continuing impact and recovery from COVID-19 against the backdrop of industry challenges of the IMO 2020 transition, OPEC + oil price collapse, the horizon of a multiple fuel future, digitalization, decarbonisation and sustainability goals.
FUJCON 2020 will take a deep dive into the key challenges, cutting edge analysis and offering solutions, stability and sustainability for the global and Middle East fuel oil, bunker & oil storage markets, grappling with the market landscape brought about by the pandemic.
