What is Platts Methanol Bunker Rotterdam?

Platts methanol bunker Rotterdam is the methanol price assessment reflecting the value of methanol used as a marine fuel at the port of Rotterdam. Platts publishes methanol bunker fuel calculations converted to LNG and oil energy content equivalents, enabling comparison with other marine fuels.

Alongside the launch of methanol bunker fuel assessments, Platts has introduced daily cost comparisons for alternative marine fuels, reflecting the calorific value comparison of methanol bunker fuel, LNG bunker fuel, marine fuel oil, and marine gasoil.

How does Platts assess Rotterdam methanol bunker fuels?

Platts assesses methanol bunker fuel at a differential from its daily methanol FOB Rotterdam spot assessment calculated in $/mt.

The flat price includes the logistics costs from the terminal to the barge or truck, and charges for delivery direct to the receiving vessel.
