Fuel in SECA zone will be 50 percent more expensive

Starting January 1st 2015 ships operating in the Baltic Sea and the North Sea - the SECA zone - will only be allowed to emit 0.1 percent sulphur. The new fuel will cost USD 300 more per ton, says OW Bunker.

A survey performed by ShippingWatch recently among some of the largest shipping companies in Europe showed that most carriers will opt for the more expensive, less sulphurous Marine Gas Oil when the environmental regulations regarding less sulphur in shipping come into force on January 1st 2015 in the Baltic Sea, the North Sea, and the English Channel, the so-called SECA zone.
