Topic 1:  “Fuel Management Challenges – Bunkering to Burning” Presented by Mr. Harun Ar Rashid ( 21 E)

Since Jan 2015, ships entering the ECAs (Emission control areas) are required to burn fuel with Sulfur content max 0.10%.
The ECA fuels are mainly LSMGO and about a tenth consists of Marine distillate and hybrid fuels which resemble DMB, RMB30 and RMD80 of 8217 grades. Outside the ECAs, ships can burn HSFO with a max Sulfur content of 3.50%. The ship operators face numerous challenges while using these fuels. This presentation will give a rare opportunity to the audience to learn more about these challenges and clarify any specific doubts they may have.

Drilling is carried out after studies of structural geology beneath the earth’s surface for collection of crude oil. According to the composition of the crude oil and depending on the demands of the market, refineries can produce different shares of petroleum products.
The speaker will give an overview of the oil processing and intervention of the Oil Majors in transporting of oil by Sea.
