If it's anything like diesel, it will still be used, but will require more refining to remove the sulfur, and then the resultant oil will have less energy too.

When diesel went to ultra low sulfur, the price went up, and the lubrication properties of the fuel went down, resulting in things like fuel pumps prematurely wearing out. I think even the energy content was slightly reduced.
