What is marine gas oil?

Marine gas oil (bunker fuel or bunker oil) is any type of diesel that is used in seagoing vessels. The term ‘bunker’ is used for a vessel’s or marina’s oil storage tank, hence the name ‘bunker fuels’.

Are there any alternative names for marine gas oil?

Oil in the marine industry does vary from one name to another and finding the right bunker fuel for your needs can sometimes seem quite tricky. As one of the UK’s leading bunker fuels suppliers, Crown Oil has created a short but helpful list of alternative names and abbreviations for marine oil.

  • MGO – Marine Gas Oil
  • MDO – Marine Diesel Oil
  • IFO – Intermediate Fuel Oil
  • MFO – Marine Fuel Oil
  • HFO – Heavy Fuel Oil

Bunker fuels not only vary by name but by quality so it’s always worth checking with us before you buy bunker fuel to ensure you’re getting the best marine diesel oil.

Marine gas oil 2020 sulphur cap

The International Maritime Organisation (IMO) has recently announced a 0.50% global sulphur cap on marine fuel emissions that is due on January 1 2020. Under the new cap, ships must use marine fuels that have a sulphur content of no more than 0.50% to help reduce the amount of sulphur oxide in the air.

What is happening to the marine gas oil prices?

The cost of marine gas oil mainly depends on the volume of bunker fuel purchased. In comparison with other qualities of red diesel, it is generally a lower cost but that is because marine diesel oil is a lower quality compared to other gas oil (also known as red diesel) designed for other purposes; like tractors and backup generators.

With varied quality comes different bunker fuel oil prices, so make sure you’re getting the best fuel oil for your marine needs at Crown Oil.
