MARINE BUNKER FUELS - ANALYSIS AND FORECAST OF PRICE AND AVAILABILITY

This study develops forecasts through 1993 of the refiner's acquisition costs for crude oil from domestic sources and for crude oil imports. Domestic crude oil price and availability are analyzed by producing region, taking into account the effects of energy legislation on domestic crude oil prices. The level of imports is based on U.S. energy requirements and the supply of energy from domestic sources. The prices of Marine Bunker Fuels are forecast based on the refiner's acquisition costs of crude oil and the processing and desulfurization costs. The effects of the rising ratio of high to low sulfur crude oil on the availability of Marine Bunker Fuels are analyzed.
