As of Feb.02, the MABUX MBP/DBP Index (MDI), monitoring the correlation between market bunker prices (MBP) and the MABUX digital bunker price benchmark (DBP), indicated the following trends at four selected ports: Rotterdam, Singapore, Fujairah, and Houston.

- HSFO segment: All four selected ports remained undercharged, with the underprice premium narrowing by $7 in Rotterdam, $14 in Singapore, $17 in Fujairah, but widening by $2 in Houston. The MDI index in Fujairah still exceeds the $100 mark.
