Arctic fuel switching impact study
This report analyzes the potential cost impact for the Arctic Sealift of requiring the use of low- sulphur fuels rather than residual fuel oils. Low sulphur emissions are now required in North American waters south of 600N following the implementation of the North American Emission Control Area (ECA). The Sealift has been exempted from this requirement by Transport Canada. North of 600N, the Arctic does not form part of the ECA.
