The MABUX World Bunker Index, calculated based on current prices for 380 HSFO, VLSFO, and MGO, displayed a lack of a clear trend and moved laterally on September 5th.

380 HSFO – USD/MT – 571.71 (-0.03)

VLSFO – USD/MT – 673.32 (-0.22)

MGO – USD/MT – 997.27 (+5.32)

HSFO Overcharge

As of Sep. 05, the MABUX MBP/DBP Index (MDI) (the correlation between market bunker prices (MBP) and the MABUX digital bunker price benchmark (DBP)), registered the following changes in four selected ports: Rotterdam, Singapore, Fujairah and Houston:

– HSFO segment: MDI in Rotterdam registered 100 percent correlation between market price and digital benchmark. Thus, Houston remained the only overcharged port with the premium widening by $2. Singapore and Fujairah, on the contrary, remained underpriced with Singapore’s undercharge margin increasing further by $9 and Fujairah’s by $8.

VLSFO Market Update

– VLSFO segment: MDI registered underpricing in all four selected ports. The undercharge premium increased by $3 in Rotterdam, $3 in Singapore and $5 in Fujairah. In Houston, MDI remained unchanged.

MGO LS Market Update

– MGO LS segment: All four selected ports were in the underpriced area. The undervalue ratio increased by $7 in Rotterdam, $1 in Singapore, $5 in Fujairah and $7 in Houston.

We expect Global bunker indices to resume a sustainable upward evolution on Sep. 06: 380 HSFO – plus 2-6 USD/MT, VLSFO – plus 2-6 USD/MT, MGO LS – plus 5-15 USD/MT.
