Bunker fuel is used in ship's bunkers to power its engines. This fuel is divided into A, B or C grades. The C grade is the thickest and often requiring heating or blending in order to make it flow. There are two types of bunker fuels such as distillate and residual. Distillate fuel is composed of petroleum fractions of crude oil that are separated in a refinery by the distillation process. Residual fuel is also called as residuum or petroleum pitch.MARKET DYNAMICS
