Last week Fujairah ex-wharf bunkers were at $4-7 per tonne for 380 centistoke
For fuel oil, Platts now assesses domestic-grade 180 centistoke
A960 cargoes are typically sold at high premiums of $10-$12 a ton to Singapore spot quotes, but the historically low prices transacted have resulted from the recent slump in 180- centistoke
This stokes an unusually high demand for better-quality fuel with low viscosity of between 5 and 100 centistoke
, which traders use to blend with the raw cargoes in onland tanks or floating storage to make the 380-cst bunker or marine fuel grade.
Named for their port location, delivery basis and viscosity levels, as measured by kinematic viscosity in centistokes
(CST), the new assessments are:
Key statement: A tire dressing composition is provided that includes at least one silicone fluid having a viscosity of between 40 and 500,000 centiStokes
at room temperature.
