Bunker prices continue going down at the port of Saint-Petersburg, Russia (graph)
Global oil prices started going up after a recent decrease. Fuel prices continue going down. The competition is still tough with market players trying to sell high-sulphur fuel oil which will not be in demand from January 2020 due to new IMO sulphur cap introduced for marine fuel.
Market players set dumping prices for high-sulphur fuel oil.
Bunker suppliers start offering VLSFO (with sulphur content not exceeding 0.5%) which fully complies with MARPOL requirements. They say there is a demand for this product although low yet.
