Clichéd as it might now appear, the critical nature of managing the transition as a revolutionary new marine fuel environment is established, can never be overemphasized. There is mounting concern among ship operators on the availability, affordability & appropriateness of the new energy sources.
Meanwhile, M/E damage accounts for 28% of machinery claims, with lub oil failure as the most frequent & expensive cause of damage. As lubrication characteristics will need to adopt to the new fuels, lub oil management will be a topic brought into sharp focus.
Please benefit from one of the largest O&G vertical integrated companies (accounting for +2% of crude production & 1% of proved hydrocarbon reserves globally), address the elephant in the room and discuss whether rhetoric matches reality and what technical challenges (& perhaps opportunities) will exist for shipping. You are cordially invited for an IMarEST UAE branch technical meeting:
Venue: Starlight ballroom, Sheraton Grand Hotel, Dubai.
Topic: IMO 2020 & Engine Lubrication
Date & Time: 25 July 2019 (Thu) at 18:30h.
