Bunker fuel, also called fuel oil, refers to the fractionally distilled variety of liquid fuel derived from crude oil. Bunker fuel can be classified on the basis of its boiling point, intended purpose, and chemical composition. Bunker fuels are the fuels used expressly specifically for operating marine fleets and account for as much as 70% of the overall expenditure of a voyage for a marine vessel. Owing to the highly unrefined nature, bunker fuels are also known to be more polluting as compared to other fuel types. Hence, stringent regulations have been put in place implemented these days to ensure that better grades of oil, that, which are less harmful to the marine environment, be used as bunker fuels.
