The relative price difference between HFO and LSHFO is likely to remain the same. The (what I consider to be) temporary low crude price will only make the absolute price difference an issue, that could make the scrubber investment less attractive. As soon as Corona is under control and the Saudis will also realise that their income is in steep decline, the choice for scrubbers will have to be seen in the normal context.

Whatever I think about it, but there were lots of owners who built their ships without scrubbers 2 years ago, betting on acceptable price difference between HFO and LSHFO, only to run to whoever was having an empty yard slot to install them now - and now they're again wandering if their choice was correct...

Vlad, do you think that the price of Low Sulphur Fuel Oil will stay permanently low?

And, luckily for them, VLCC tankers have plenty of space to install scrubbers. Only now, with oil prices approaching those of mineral water again, they may seem like an expensive option...
