HSFO Overcharge 

As of Nov. 17, 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 moved to the overcharge zone, with overprice premium widening by $7. Meanwhile, the other three selected ports remained in the undercharge zone, with underprice margins narrowing further by $16 in Rotterdam, $16 in Singapore and $10 in Fujairah. The undervalue level in Fujairah has approached the $100 mark but remains above it.

VLSFO Overcharge 

– VLSFO segment: Rotterdam and Houston continued to be in the undercharge zone, observing a $14 decrease in underprice premiums in Rotterdam and a $21 decrease in Houston. Singapore and Fujairah were overcharged, with overprice margins rising further by $28 in Singapore and $16 in Fujairah.
