VLSFO - USD/MT – 524.07 (+5.45)

MGO - USD/MT – 598.29 (+3.92)

As of April 30, a correlation of MBP Index (Market Bunker Prices) vs DBP Index (Digital Bunker Prices = MABUX Digital Benchmark) in four largest global hubs showed that 380 HSFO fuel remained undercharged in all four selected ports in a range from minus $7 (Houston) to minus $39 (Singapore).

According to DBP Index, VLSFO was underestimated in Rotterdam (minus $22), Singapore (minus $36) and Fujairah (minus $34). In Houston this fuel grade is still overcharged by plus $1.
