AIE Sydney | The Move to Low Sulphur Marine Fuel Oil: Its Impact on the Marine and Petroleum Industries, Australia and the World

Venue: Griffith Hack

Date: Tue 16 Apr 2019 @ 5:15pm for 5:30pm start to 7:00pm. Close by 7:30pm


Much of the public debate on energy issues in Australia in recent years has focused on the electricity market, and, to a lesser extent, the natural gas market. However, the shift to low sulphur marine fuels from 1 January 2020, will have significant implications for Australia and indeed the world.

In the past, the use of high sulphur, residual, marine fuel oils was synergistic, providing both an outlet for difficult to upgrade petroleum fractions for refiners, and a source of lower cost fuel, which was easy to store and to bunker, for the shipping industry.

While this important change has the attention of the maritime and oil industries, it is still largely unknown to the general public, and even to other energy professionals, although it will significantly impact those industries and, as a trading nation, Australia’s exports and imports. The change to low sulphur marine fuels creates important regulatory, technical and economic issues.

Our distinguished speakers will be Angela Gillham, Deputy CEO, Maritime Industry Australia Ltd and Paul Barrett, CEO, Australian Institute of Petroleum Ltd.
