Alphaliner: Maersk to keep 23 percent of oil savings

Maersk Line will presumably try to retain 23 percent of the total savings on fuel in 2015, says Alphaliner on the basis of numbers from the carrier and its expected consumption in 2015.

Analyst agency Alphaliner estimates that Maersk Line expects to retain 23 percent of the carrier's billion dollar savings on fuel, while 70-80 percent of the savings will benefit the customers as part of the so-called BAF surcharge (Bunker Adjustment Factor).

Based on Maersk Line's total bunker consumption in 2014 of 8.8 million tons, this corresponds to USD 2.1 billion savings in fuel alone in 2015.
