The introduction of the global IMO 0.5% sulphur cap is causing a fundamental change in the bunker market. As underlying buying patterns shift, reference prices are changing in response. Argus publishes more than 80 IMO-compliant price assessments – including fuel oil and marine gas oil – covering the world’s most important bunker hubs.

If you are signing a 0.5% bunker contract, you should be using a 0.5% index to effectively manage your price risk exposure. Argus price assessments provide you with a rigorous pricing alternative to differentials and are the most appropriate price reference for the new low-sulphur marine fuel market.
