MGO BAF

Marine Gas Oil Bunker Adjustment Factor

New rules on 1 January 2015

On 1 January 2015, the EU Sulphur Directive 2012/33/EU brought about a major reduction in sulphur dioxide emission from ships, and that will heavily impact shipping in northern Europe. The Directive will require ships sailing in the English Channel, the North Sea and the Baltic Sea (the North European emission control area) to use bunker oil with a maximum 0.1% sulphur or apply alternative methods in order to achieve the same effect.

New, simpler Bunker Surcharge model (BAF)

DFDS has now introduced a new way of calculating BAF that is simpler than the old one.

From 1 January, 2019, the BAF will change only when the MGO oil price per ton changes between intervals of 10 Euros.

The new MGO BAF levels are based on the average price of the MGO oil and the EUR/USD rate from the previous two months.

Measured period 20/10 -20/11/2019
0,1% MGO, USD/ton 562,96
EUR/USD 1,1087
0,1% MGO, EUR/ton 507,76
EUR/GBP 0,8603
