This one-day training course is designed to provide a solid base from which delegates may increase their understanding of bunker claims and how to avoid them. It will identify the main causes of bunker disputes and demonstrate how careful planning can minimise the risk; it shows how potentially costly disputes can be avoided in the first place; and gives some guidance as to what might be done should a dispute lead to an expensive claim and damages.
The course examines the types of bunker claims most prevalent in the industry and offers advice on how these claims might be assessed.
It looks at bunker quality, bunker quantity and delays, three of the most common sources of disputes, and suggests practical procedures that can be implemented to reduce the chances of disputes arising.
The course also looks in more depth at the fuels being supplied and used, and tackles the problem from the point of view of the charterer and owner.
Making full use of interactive exercises and case studies, An Introduction to Bunker Disputes is as highly suitable for newcomers to bunker supplying, trading and purchasing as it is for maritime lawyers, insurers and others whose daily jobs occasionally require some understanding of how to avoid disputes and deal with claims.
The Maritime Cluster Fund (MCF) Training Grant is available for up to 5 eligible participants. The Training Grant will be allocated on a first come, first served basis on receipt of the appropriate paperwork, correctly completed. Please refer to www.mpa.gov.sg/mcf for more information.
