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.
