WE are now nine months away from the 2020 low-sulphur fuel regulations coming into effect and there are still a few stakeholders feeling a little nervous.

We’re not quite a Brexit levels of last-minute panic just yet but it’s fair to say that there are still some pretty significant questions being raised about availability, quality and, of course, pricing. 

The fuel suppliers have smelled the fear and most are currently touring their core customer bases to assuage any lingering concerns.

We caught up with Total Marine Fuels managing director Jerome Leprince-Ringuet and Total Lubrifants manager Robert Joore for this week’s podcast as they embarked on the second leg of Total’s world tour touting their 2020 fuel offerings and talked through industry concerns, why fuel management still needs work and why no shipowner can now ignore the LNG-fuel option when considering a newbuilding.
