As of Sep. 05, the MABUX MBP/DBP Index (MDI) (the correlation between market bunker prices (MBP) and the MABUX digital bunker price benchmark (DBP)), registered the following changes in four selected ports: Rotterdam, Singapore, Fujairah and Houston:

- HSFO segment: MDI in Rotterdam registered 100 percent correlation between market price and digital benchmark. Thus, Houston remained the only overcharged port with the premium widening by $2. Singapore and Fujairah, on the contrary, remained underpriced with Singapore's undercharge margin increasing further by $9 and Fujairah’s by $8.
