ExxonMobil has commenced bunker deliveries of its EMF.5 range of 2020 compliant fuels in Fos/Marseille, Genoa and Laem Chabang in Thailand. The three ports join Rotterdam, Antwerp, Zeebrugge and Singapore as locations where the 0.50% sulphur fuels are now available.

The fuels are specifically formulated to comply with the IMO 2020 sulphur cap. They are also engineered to be compatible with each other provided that handling, storage and use best practice is followed.

In addition to meeting the ISO 8217-2017 specification, EMF.5 fuels have also passed ExxonMobil’s rigorous fit-for-use assessments, allowing customers to bunker the high quality, compliant options they need ahead of the IMO 2020 deadline.

ExxonMobil has also developed a newly formulated 40BN cylinder oil, Mobilgard 540, which is specifically designed to work with low-sulphur fuels. It will be available across the company’s global port network along with the EMF.5 range of fuels.
