Product Description

EXXON MOBIL Corporation supplies marine fuels around the world through its dedicated ExxonMobil Marine Distillate Fuel (EMMF) division. Should you require information about the typical properties of fuel currently available in certain locations, please contact your EMMF representative, who will be able to help you.

You can be sure that the fuel you buy through EMMF meets stringent quality requirements, wherever it is delivered. To achieve this, EMMF supplies marine fuels that meet particular specifications. These specifications apply to fuels produced by ExxonMobil, as well as to those fuels acquired for resale by EMMF through purchase or exchange from other sources. 

EMMF's specifications are reviewed regularly so that they incorporate the latest equipment and industry requirements, including the standards set by organisations such as ASTM and ISO. 

Marine Gas Oil (MGO) - The nearest equivalent ISO grade is DMA. DMA and DMZ are the highest quality distillate normally supplied for marine use, delivered in dedicated pipelines or barges. 

Marine Diesel Oil (MDO) - The nearest equivalent ISO grade is DMB. MDO is a distillate fuel. However, it may be black in colour because it is delivered through pipelines or by barges used for black oils such as RMFO.
