The fines for using wrong and illegal fuel in the North Sea and the Baltic Sea are much smaller than the savings a carrier can achieve by cheating. And the risk of getting caught is not very big, says SeaIntel.

Carriers can save significant amounts of money by cutting down on the expensive and mandatory low-sulphur fuel when their ships sail through the English Channel and into the Northern European environmental zone, SECA. The risks of getting caught by authorities are not very big, and if it does happen, the size of the fines are much smaller than the savings the carriers can achieve by reducing their consumption of low-sulphur fuel.
