  1. Market Forecast

SunSirs’ Energy analysts believe that the surge of international crude oil in Saudi Arabia in previous week led to the rise of domestic ship fuel market and shale oil prices, which led to a sharp increase of 100-200 RMB/ton in domestic ship fuel market. However, international crude oil prices dropped sharply at the weekend, and shale oil prices fell. The overall ship fuel market was depressed and the wait-and-see mood was strong. Fuel oil market prices are expected to remain stable in the near future, or around 4,650 RMB/ton.
