The bunker quality info tab on Neptune has been updated. 

While there has been some improvement in HFO samples from New York failing on cat fines, the figures remain high. HFO off-specs in ARA region are still in excess of 40% of the samples.

VLSFO delivered in New York may lead to sulphur compliance issues. Over the past six months, 4.1% of samples tested between 0.50 and 0.53% S, with further 1.9% exceeding 0.53 threshold.

Lubeck ranks as the fifth biggest global ULSFO supply port. 55% of samples exhibit Pour Point exceeding 31 degrees centigrade.

MGO supplies in 10 biggest ports have been problematic due to off-spec Pour Point temperature and FAME content.
