About this Report

This report is intended to assist buyers of bunker fuel, which is a fuel produced by a refining process called fractional distillation. It is also known as bunker crude, marine fuel, fuel oil or residual fuel. Bunker fuel is thicker and heavier than most other fuel types, making it suitable to power large marine engines. This report covers all bunker fuels, but excludes other types of fuel, such as gasoline, propane and jet fuel.
