May 24-25, 2016 • The Mainport Hotel Rotterdam • The Netherlands
The date for Platts 7th European Bunker Fuel Conference has been set for May 24-25th 2016, and will take place in the wonderful city of Rotterdam.
Supported by the Port of Rotterdam, Platts European Bunker Fuel Conference will bring together the leading bunker fuel suppliers, traders, brokers, refiners, ship operators, owners, and other marine fuel industry organizations to provide a unique and comprehensive overview of the European bunker fuel market.
An industry with new dynamics
After what is argued to be the most dramatic sulphur regulation we have witnessed…so far, developments have not quite been as anticipated in regard to price, compliance and quality. The sting of the regulation was certainly taken out of the tail thanks to a dramatically low oil price, but how has this changed the dynamics of the market and what will happen when the oil price inevitably rebounds.
The outlook for alternative fuels
After the oil price collapse, what did look like a feasible choice post January 2015 has now fallen down the pecking order thanks to affordable low sulphur fuels, as investment in alternative fuels staggers just what is the outlook for LNG and Methanol in shipping?
More networking opportunities
Platts understand the need for effective and valuable networking time, and this event will be no exception. Built into each day are a number of dedicated social functions designed to stimulate participant interaction including an evening drinks reception.
