Report summary

The next big push from the MARPOL Annex VI protocol begins in January 2015 when the sulphur limit falls to 0.1% in the Emission Control Areas in Northern Europe and North America. Marine gasoil is still expected to be the main beneficiary while LNG and sulphur scrubbers remain marginal. While a number of blended 0.1% ECA compliant fuels are also being introduced the lack of an agreed industry standard limits the market appeal of these blended alternatives to pure distillate fuels.
