  • Discuss the future 0.5% sulphur cap implementation
    By the time of the conference, the schedule will be set on when the global cap will come into force. Hear from the leaders of industry as they answer the questions; Will there be enough distillate to meet demand? Is this the end for residual? How can it be enforced? And much more
  • Identify the challenges ahead as the oil price fluctuates
    The low oil price has certainly helped the shipping industry move to lower sulphur fuels without much financial consequences, but as the price fluctuates, what does this mean for the supply chain. Can all ensure payment? Trust in the industry has been somewhat lost, and the availability of credit might decline with an increase in oil price; so how do all parties keep operating?
  • Explore the outlook for alternative fuels
    Alternative fuels have fallen behind in no part due to the low oil price. However as we approach 2020, decisions need to be made for all as to what to invest in. Gain a greater overview of developments in the region and hear from current end users of their experiences so far
  • 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 which is hosted by our event partner Aegean Marine petroleum after day one.
