ExxonMobil concludes its ‘Journey to 2020’ symposiums

ExxonMobil has successfully completed its series of ‘Journey to 2020’ symposiums, held in major ports around the globe. These sessions enabled customers and industry stakeholders to examine the implications of the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) 0.50 per cent global sulphur cap with our marine fuels and lubricants experts.

These discussions highlighted a number of areas of concern, which will help ExxonMobil better tailor its advice to best meet customer needs. Key topics included:

  • How to manage the switchover to IMO-compliant fuel grades
  • The availability of 0.50 per cent sulphur fuel ahead of the 1 January 2020 deadline
  • The impact low sulphur fuels will have on cylinder oil selection

“The symposiums provided an invaluable opportunity to hear industry concerns, direct from customers and industry stakeholders,” said Joseph Star, ExxonMobil’s Global Field Marketing Advisor, Marine Lubricants. “We are now well-placed to meet the vessel operators’ specific needs and support the maritime industry through a period of radical change.”

The ‘Journey to 2020’ symposiums further underline ExxonMobil’s commitment to a collaborative approach to developing bespoke solutions for vessel operators, irrespective of their chosen route to IMO compliance.
