How to safely manage fuel storage and handling for marine operators
The marine fuel market continues to undergo complex change as a result of evolving environmental legislation. Issues surrounding fuel stability and compatibility have never been so prominent, especially in light of the new 0.10 per cent sulphur cap for marine fuels used in Emission Control Areas (ECAs), which triggered the development of a range of ECA-compliant distillate and residual fuels.
The need to switch to and from these variants when entering or leaving an ECA poses a range of challenges for operators – many of which are still not fully understood by the industry. In light of these challenging times, ExxonMobil launched the ExxonMobil Insight series and in the third video featured here, you can find out how to manage fuel storage and handling.
