Marine lubricants supply services have always been rated by the ability to reliably supply vessels wherever they sail.
Although that never meant that marine lubricants were available in 100% of the ports of the world, extensive marine lubricants supply networks have always focused on the ability to deliver not only in main ports but also in more remote ports and to service all types of vessels not just liners trading predictable routes…
In the last two years, and in view of the lubrication issues (cold corrosion) appearing on long /super long strokes engines and when slow steaming, the OEM have recommended the combination of higher BN cylinder oils (BN 100) when burning HSFO and BN 40 cylinder oils when burning LSFO for most modern engines (typically MAN Diesel & Turbo Mark 8 engines and later designs), and the use of the classic coupling of BN 70 cylinder oil (when burning HSFO) and BN 40 cylinder oil (when burning LSFO) for older types of engines.
These clear recommendations have of course impacted on the stocks globally. In term of availability, this has created numerous bottlenecks and supply issues all around the world, and for ship owners and managers this has meant a lot of ongoing confusion and headaches.
