ASSESSING DEMAND, AVAILABILITY, QUALITY AND PRICE

Likely developments in the bunker market are discussed in this article, which is based on extracts from the author's presentation at the International Bunker Conference held in Oslo in November 1989. Among the points made is one noting that availability forecasts indicate an overall surplus in high sulphur fuel oil through the early 1990s, which will work toward ensuring that prices remain very competitive. Major investments for sulphur removal processes, however, will work against this and push up costs. It has been estimated, for example, that a residue hydroconversion process will require a fuel oil "premium" of up to $20 per m t for each percent of extracted sulphur.
