Ocean shipping is the most energy efficient forms of freight transportation. Recent estimates show that moving goods by ocean container can be 17 times more fuel-efficient than transporting the same goods by air, and 10 times more efficient than transporting goods by road.

22 Jan 2019 As the price of low-sulphur fuels such as marine gas oil spikes higher, so will diesel and jet fuel, ensuring the impact of the IMO's regulation is  With the ever-changing technology on ships, the fuel that is used to run marine engines is also changing rapidly. Recently, LNG is being seen as the “future fuel” for the shipping industry, however, the industry as a whole is yet to adapt to this change, and thus Marine Gas Oil is still one of the most preferred clean fuel used on ships. The lighter marine gasoil (MGO) and marine diesel oil (MDO) fuels, however, are significantly more expensive than heavy fuel oil, so that heavy fuel oil is still predominantly used in commercial shipping. In early April 2016, the price of marine gasoil, for example, was more than double that of heavy fuel oil. Since the 1960s, heavy fuel oil (HFO) has been the king of marine fuels. Viscous, dirty, yet inexpensive and widely available, HFO propelled a long period of robust growth in international shipping, which carries over 90% of intercontinental trade by volume each year. For many, it is the lifeblood of the maritime shipping industry.

Marine Gas Oil (MGO) is the highest class of marine fuel, with the lowest concentration of sulphur and particulates in the fuel, limited to less than 0.10% m/m. In this day and age, there are numerous locations around the world, including the Balt

28 Jan 2020 The authors found that using LNG could actually worsen the shipping industry's climate impacts compared to marine gas oil (MGO) when  20 Jan 2020 New maritime rules known as IMO 2020 mandate that the shipping industry has to burn cleaner, low sulfur fuels in tankers. Since the 1960's HFO is the dominant marine fuel in the shipping sector. HFO is a It is also used to remove sulfur from fuels during the oil-refining process.
