  1. Market Forecast

SunSirs’ energy analysts believe that this week's rise in international crude oil is better than that in the fuel oil market and shale oil prices are rising, but the overall market for ship fuel is depressed, downstream demand is weak and prices remain stable. Fuel oil market prices are expected to remain stable in the near future, or around 4,500 RMB/ton.
