Impact of new rules on marine fuel infrastructure and distribution is subject of debate
On December 3, at 8:30 am, Fundação Getulio Vargas will host an international seminar titled “Energy in Transition: Brazil's Infrastructure and Distribution of Marine Fuels under IMO 2020.” Compliance The event, organized by FGV Energy and FGV Transportes, with technical assistance from Waterline Maritime Strategies, will take place in the 12th-floor auditorium in FGV’s main building (Praia de Botafogo, 190, Botafogo, Rio de Janeiro).
The event will discuss the need for marine fuel infrastructure to be renovated, to make Brazilian ports more competitive. This subject is particularly relevant at the moment, due to the implementation of new International Maritime Organization (IMO) regulations, limiting sulfur content in fuels to 0.5% as of January 1, 2020. These rules will have a major impact on greenhouse gas emissions and nitrogen oxide content in marine fuels.
The seminar will discuss the implementation of IMO 2020 and explore the following points: refining and distribution of marine fuels; legal and P&I aspects; market and prices; and compliance in Brazilian ports. The opening speeches will be given by the director general of the National Oil, Natural Gas and Biofuels Agency (ANP), Decio Oddone; the Mines and Energy Ministry’s fuels director and Bunker Committee coordinator, Marisa Barros; and the president of FGV, Professor Carlos Ivan Simonsen Leal.
