a “significant proportion” of marine fuel buyers still do not have any risk management strategies in place to mitigate expected price rises, according to LQM Petroleum Services.
Two thirds of the hybrid bunker broker and trader’s clients polled in a webinar in mid-May thought that marine fuel prices would rise in the next 12 months. But at the same time, only half the participants said that they currently use risk management strategies to mitigate this risk.
LQM said that 21% of the webinar participants thought that current conditions would continue only for the next three months, 32% thought between three and six months whilst 36% felt that six to 12 months was a more likely scenario.
