7th Annual Mediterranean Bunker Fuel Conference

November 29-30, 2018
Athens, Greece.
Divani Caravel Hotel

November 29-30th – Athens The final countdown to 2020

What to expect for 2018:

  • One year out from IMO 2020 implementation: discuss how the 0.5% sulfur cap will affect the supply chain
    With just over a year until the IMO’s 0.5% global marine fuels sulfur limit comes into effect, the market is starting to take shape. We’re beginning to hear from the refiners about their new compliant fuels, and shipowners are starting to be more forthcoming about their plans for how to comply. Hear from industry leaders and experts as they outline their strategies and their view of how the marine fuels landscape will shift in 2020.
  • State of the shipping industry
    What can we expect from the shipping industry in 2019 as we approach the 2020 deadline? Most of the world’s largest container lines have imposed emergency bunker surcharges to recoup costs from this year’s sharp rise in fuel bills – is this a sign for things to come? And who will be picking up the tab once fuel costs jump dramatically again in 2020?
  • Explore the outlook for alternative fuels and scrubbers
    Alternative fuels and exhaust gas abatement systems still have a big part to play in meeting the sulfur cap in 2020. How much market share can they take, and how does the IMO’s greenhouse gas reduction strategy change things? Gain a greater overview of technological developments for shipping, and hear from current end-users about their experiences so far.
  • More networking opportunities
    Platts understand the need for effective and valuable networking time, and this event will be no exception. Built into each day are a number of dedicated social functions designed to stimulate participant interaction including an evening drinks reception after day one.
