Oil trader and bunker provider GP Global delivered its first barge of low-sulphur fuel oil compliant with IMO regulations on sulphur emissions into Fujairah in the United Arab Emirates, it said on Wednesday

The company delivered a 6,000-tonne bunker barge at the port, a main hub in the Mideast Gulf region for bunker operations

From the start of 2020 all ships will be required to burn fuel with maximum 0.5% sulphur, down from 3.5% sulphur currently, unless they have sulphur cleaning kits called scrubbers, according to International Maritime Organization regulations
