Shipping industry still uncertain about the effects of sulphur cap implementation

The January 1st Sulphur Cap implementation date is looming. The vast majority of shipowners will already have committed to a compliance strategy, but uncertainty about the operating environment in 2020 is still widespread.

Common concerns focus on the outlook for low sulphur fuel prices and availability, the risk of local bans on open-looped scrubbers jeopardising investment in these systems, and the prospects for LNG fuelled vessels.

Convening on 10 September 2019, Lloyd’s Maritime Academy’s Operating Under the Sulphur Cap Seminar will provide an opportunity to industry members to voice their queries to a diverse selection of experts.

Part of the London International Shipping Week, the seminar will assess the sulphur cap’s likely impacts on each part of the shipping value chain – from shipowners, to abatement technology providers, bunker suppliers and port authorities.

Key sessions:

IMO regulatory update: What the IMO is doing to ensure consistent implementation of the 0.50% sulphur limit on marine fuel oil.

The sulphur cap through a commercial lens: How the sulphur cap will affect prices for HFO, LSFO, MGO and LNG.

Case study: best practice for tank cleaning: When to clean and how to avoid contamination.

Confirmed speakers for 2019 include:

Edmund Hughes, Head of Air Pollution and Energy Efficiency, International Maritime Organisation

Carien Droppers, Deputy Secretary General, Paris MoU on Port State Control

Julian Clark, Global Head of Shipping, Hill Dickinson

Damien Valdenaire, Science Executive – Refining, CONCAWE
