The local shipping press has quoted an assurance from Ms Siyamthanda Maya, the managing director of South African Marine Fuels (SAMF), that South Africa will have low sulphur fuel available offshore with effect from 1 January 2020.  Ms Maya said that offshore bunkering in Algoa Bay will not be disrupted due to the change in fuel and that high sulphur fuel will also still be available for vessels fitted with scrubbers.
