Creeping crude prices underpinned the principle moves in the UK’s RTFC market this week, with physical low sulfur diesel prices up over $22/mt from last Friday, to poke just above the $699/mt level.
11 May 2018
It was another week in which trading activity was light and both the buy side and the sell side showed little in the way of clear indications.
4 May 2018
Bids and offers for Year 11 RTFCs were heard bracketing either side of traded levels this week, with bids heard at 18 p, offers heard at 19 p and trades at 18.5 p/certificate.

The UK government has issued 1.504 billion Road Transport Fuel Certificates (RTFCs) so far for the Year-10 compliance period, according to data released this week by the Department for Transport (DfT).
27 Apr 2018
With little in the way of trading activity to herald movement, RTFC values were unchanged week-on-week, with Year 10 at 13 p/certificate, and Year 11 at 18 p/certificate.
20 Apr 2018
First full week of the new RTFO and activity remained muted, with much of direction drawn from the mineral oil complex, which saw fresh upward momentum take gasoil prices to new heights.
13 Apr 2018
The final week of the old RTFO arrangements saw a familiar issue affecting the UK’s arrangements, as geopolitics supported crude oil prices which filtered through into refined product prices – not least diesel, which saw sharp increases mid-week.
6 Apr 2018
With the RTFO in its penultimate week before the UK’s mandate increases from 4.75% to 7.25%, a long weekend and domestic holidays collectively dampened activity in the certificate markets.
29 Mar 2018
Certificate prices for Year 10 and Year 11 fell for the third successive week, as the weight of available biofuel supply further tightened the theoretical cap on ticket prices.
23 Mar 2018
Year 11 certificates were heard trading at 16.25 p/certificate, according to market sources, in a week in which activity remained somewhat muted and the headlines were grabbed by rising oil prices and compressed biodiesel premiums.
16 Mar 2018
Another week in which activity for UK RTFCs bordered on the theoretical rather than the actual, as Year 10 certificates remained on the shelf while Year 11 at least generated some buying and selling price information.
9 Mar 2018
The week started with the RTFO being signed off in the House of Lords in the final step prior to its acceptance onto the statute books.
6 Mar 2018 |
In the end, it was as painless as the government said it would be – the revamped Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation order was passed unanimously through the House of Lords during the final stage of the Statutory Instrument process, Tuesday.
2 Mar 2018
For the third week Year 10 RTFCs were unchanged, to be assessed at 15.3 p per certificate as market sources reported further small trading volumes occurring at that level this week.
2 Mar 2018 |
The UK’s Department for Transport has signalled that it will introduce a raft of measures to improve guidance and support to industry participants affected by changes currently being made to the Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation.
27 Feb 2018 |
Proposed changes to the Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation have cleared their first hurdle in parliamentary committee with the Draft Renewable Transport Fuels and Greenhouse Gas Emissions Regulations 2018 passed unanimously during a delegated legislation committee, Monday.
23 Feb 2018
Conflicting forces conspired to keep RTFC values in check Friday, with any interest focused on Year 10 certificates as Year 11 manfully continues to await action from the UK government.
16 Feb 2018
RTFCs showed signs of shrugging off the winter quiet spell, as buying interest picked up and Year 10 sellers "pounced".
9 Feb 2018
Year 10 and Year 11 certificates were assessed unchanged on Friday at 15 p for Year 10 and 15.5 p for Year 11 as a familiar pattern held sway over RTFC prices.
2 Feb 2018
Year 10 and 11 certificates remained under pressure as February arrived, although a slightly softer tone to mineral oil prices left space for biodiesel premiums to firm marginally relieving some of the pressure from the theoretical certificate cap.
