Residual fuel oil market

The ocean shipping industry has long served as a veritable ‘garbage dump’ for the global refining industry. The dregs of the refining process, the residual high-sulfur fuel oil (HSFO) left at the bottom of the barrel when all the good stuff is sold off – that’s what ocean-going ships have been burning as fuel. In the past, such a use has typically been in competition with natural gas in power markets that have the ability to switch to fuel oil. A shift to this level of pricing would widen the fuel-oil spread to Brent from $6 per barrel in 2019 to $20 per barrel in 2020. Distillate fuel and residual fuel are the two types of fuels commonly used in bunkers. Of the two, residual fuel dominates the bunker fuel market, with around three-fourths of the share. Based on fuel grades, the bunker fuel market can be categorized into marine gas oil/marine diesel oil (MGO/MDO), intermediate fuel oil (IFO) 380, IFO 500, low sulfur (LS) 380, IFO 180, LS 180, and IFO 700.

Fuel oil is a fraction obtained from petroleum distillation, either as a distillate or a residue. The market for home heating using fuel oil has decreased due to the However, power plants and large ships are able to use residual fuel oil. Also known as: resid, No. 6 fuel oil, heavy fuel oil, 6 oil. Residual fuel oil is one of the lowest-value petroleum products from a refinery. It is essentially a  EIA projects high-sulphur residual fuel oil market could drop 55% after 2020. article image. In just over six months, the International Maritime Organisation's  Residual fuel oil is a complex mixture of hydrocarbons prepared by blending a that have marginal market value, which include petcoke and some heavy oils. 6 fuel oils, that remain after the distillate fuel oils and lighter hydrocarbons are distilled away in refinery operations. It conforms to ASTM Specifications D 396 and D 

Health and environmental concerns related to the high sulfur content of residual fuel oil have led to new policies and regulations that have significantly lowered 

of low sulphur marine fuel oils on the market, replacing the HFOs. Accordingly Heavy Fuel Oils (HFO) are produced from a mixture of residual fuel and distillate. High-sulfur residual producers struggle to allocate their output in nearby markets and will be forced to compete in a shrinking high-sulfur fuel-oil market. 10 Jan 2020 Chart of Diesel Spot Market BAsis Differentials to NYMEX Heating Oil Production of residual fuels makes up one of the smallest portions of a  •Energy Market reports (crude oil, electricity and natural gas).
