EIA Sulphur Cap to Extensively Affect Shipping Refining

first_imgzoomIllustration. Image Courtesy: Pixabay under CC0 Creative Commons license The International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) 2020 sulphur cap will have wide-ranging repercussions for the global refining and shipping industries as well for petroleum supply, demand, trade flows, and prices.According to a report by the U.S. Energy Information Administration, the reduction of sulphur content in marine fuels from the previous limit of 3.5%, established in 2012, to 0.5% as of 2020, already saw the shipping and refining industries start making preparations and investments to varying degrees to accommodate IMO 2020 regulations.As the implementation date for the sulfur cap approaches, the EIA expects that shifts in petroleum product pricing may begin as early as mid-to-late 2019.The effects on petroleum prices are expected to be most acute in 2020, but would be moderate after that. However, the regulations would affect petroleum supply, demand, and trade flows on a more long-term basis, EIA added.Because IMO 2020 will affect petroleum markets across several years, EIA’s STEO forecast and AEO2019 projections provide complementary insights into the effects of the regulations.EIA released a report on the matter, explaining the findings related to IMO 2020 from the STEO and AEO2019 analysis, as well as the uncertainties that might affect the way that actual outcomes deviate from EIA’s forecasts and projections.last_img read more

Finance Committee Requests Town Posts Employment Contracts Online To Increase Transparency

first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — At December’s Finance Committee meeting, Chair John Doherty made a request of Town Manager Jeff Hull to post all of the town’s employment contracts on the town’s website.Doherty pointed out that many municipalities are voluntarily posting their contracts online in the name of transparency. He’d like to see Wilmington follow suit. Doherty noted that such contracts are considered “public” documents.Town Manager Jeff Hull recently notified Superintendent Glenn Brand of the Finance Committee’s desire to see collective bargaining and individual employee contracts posted on the town’s website.According to a memo from Brand to the School Committee, Andrew Waugh, the school district’s attorney Andrew Waugh, has advised that “while it is customary for districts to post collective bargaining agreements online, it would be prudent to consult the School Committee members regarding the posting of individual employee contracts, as the decision about whether or not to post may be viewed as a policy decision; therefore it is ultimately a decision that the School Committee and Superintendent would need to make.”The School Committee will have a discussion surrounding Doherty’s request at their meeting this Wednesday night.(NOTE: Cover photo from Jamie Boudreau’s Airgoz Aerial Photography.)Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.
