The 37th Argus Fuel Oil & Feedstock Summit returns to Miami October 22-24, 2017! This event, formerly the Frank Swierz Energy Conference, is the must-attend networking event for fuel oil and bunker markets.

The fuel oil and bunker markets continue to be a major focus of discussion, uncertainty and opportunity. The IMO MARPOL regulations have been in place for almost a year now, but there are still huge questions on how this will affect the residual bunker market. What will compliance look like? How will regulations be enforced? What will the penalties be?

Even aside from the new sulfur standards, what is the anticipated outlook for the VGO and heavy feedstocks markets? What equipment will refiners need to invest in how large will the expected financial commitment be? What is the outlook for utilities around the globe to use oil as a generation fuel? With all these looming uncertainties, how do cash-strapped shipping industry deal with the tough investment decisions it faces?

Attend our 37th annual summit to hear insight and proven case studies addressing these pressing market issues as well as discover how to manage these changing fuel oil market dynamics.

  • Gain a comprehensive overview of the global residue markets
