México se ha sumado oficialmente al acuerdo alcanzado por la OPEP+ para reducir la producción mundial de petróleo crudo, después de pactar con Estados Unidos que este país asuma una parte significativa de la cuota de ajuste originalmente asignada al país azteca, que limitará así a 100.000 barriles diario su recorte de oferta, según ha anunciado el presidente mexicano, Andrés Manuel López Obrador.

En una conferencia de prensa, López Obrador ha informado de que en una conversación telefónica con su homólogo estadounidense, Donald

The decision to invest in LNG as a bunker fuel is not an easy one. There can be substantial premiums to be paid; up to 30 per cent for certain ship types in the most expensive cases. This high cost, combined with the lack of confirmed LNG availability for bunkering, in particular for segments dominated by the tramp trade, goes a long way to explaining the hesitation of many shipowners and charterers to move toward LNG-fuelled propulsion for newbuilds.

A group of ship owners have announced plans for a $5bn (£3.8bn) fund to design zero-emissions vessels.

They says $2 (£1.50) should be levied on every tonne of ships' fuel - to support research into clean engines.

Shipping creates about 3% of the emissions that are over-heating the climate - equivalent to all of Germany's CO2.

Environmentalists welcomed the proposal but also described it as too little, too late.

They say it's outrageous that international shipping pays no fuel taxes, unlike lorry owners.

Green groups argue that if ships were
