Presentation: Residue Hydrotreating in a 0.5% Sulphur Bunker Fuel World

Wednesday 17th October, 3:15 pm

  • The International Maritime Organization (IMO) will implement 0.5 wt% Sulphur emissions spec for Bunker fuels in 2020 from the current 3.5 wt%. This presentation review the current bunker fuel oil market and the expected longer term trend, including the potential market responses to this emissions spec change.
  • The response from the downstream industry is refinery specific and depends on the current configuration and geographical location. We will present at the possible technical options that refiners have to avoid producing low value high sulphur residue and more specifically the role of resid hydrotreating as an alternative to delayed coking.
  • The IMO spec will affect the current bunker producers, the presentation will touch upon the investment options and strategies that these producers can consider to align with the regulation. We also present the impact on OpEx and resid treating capacity for refineries that currently already produces 1% fuel oil.
