All scrubbed up and ready to go? Updated analysis of the IMO 2020 marine fuel sulphur changes

Report summary

There is now less than a year to go until the IMO regulation limiting the sulphur content of fuel oil used on board ships to 0.5% comes into force. This insight summarises our latest analysis of the impact of this fuel specification change. The insight provides updated forecasts for product crack spreads, refining margins and crude differentials consistent with our H2 2018 crude price forecasts and global refined product balances. We highlight recent developments in scrubber and LNG investments and provide our latest assessment of the availability and quality of VLSFO by region. We also present further work on the impact of the evolution of the global crude slate, refinery investments and upgrading capacity.
