In its outlook for Q2 2017, MOL has revised its average bunker price forecast down from $350 per tonne on April 28 to $330 per tonne - a reduction of $20, or 5.7 percent; and its average bunker price prediction for the first six months (H1) is now $324 per tonne, which is $26, or 7.4 percent lower than three months ago.

For H2, MOL has lowered its average price prediction by $20, or 5.7 percent, to $330 per tonne.
