HSFO Undercharge

As of Nov. 20, the MABUX MBP/DBP Index (MDI), which tracks the correlation between market bunker prices (MBP) and the MABUX digital bunker price benchmark (DBP), has observed the following trends in four selected ports: Rotterdam, Singapore, Fujairah, and Houston.

– HSFO segment: Houston has reentered the undercharge zone, joining the other three selected ports. Underprice margins widened by $4 in Rotterdam, $10 in Singapore, and $7 in Houston, but narrowed by $1 in Fujairah. The undervalue level in Fujairah remains close to the $100 mark.
