Bunker fuel, alternatively referred to as marine fuel, represents heavy, residual oil used to power the engines or motors of the marine fleet. It is available in numerous types, such as high sulfur fuel oil (HSFO), very low sulfur fuel oil (VLSFO), marine diesel oil (MDO), liquefied natural gas (LNG), etc. These categories of bunker fuel are obtained after extracting diesel, gasoline, and other light hydrocarbons from crude oil during fractional distillation in refineries. They are extremely cost-effective and have high viscosity. Consequently, bunker fuel products are extensively utilized in containers, tankers, general cargo, bulk carriers, and other vessels across the globe.
