Bunker Claims Management is a comprehensive half-day seminar geared towards guiding bunker buyers and sellers safely through the legal pitfalls associated with marine fuels.

It focuses on the most problematic areas within bunkering:

  • contracts and the legal framework
  • the financial framework, from assessing credit risk through to payment
  • default
  • ship arrest
  • flag arrest
  • other available legal action.

The seminar will highlight the many things that can go wrong throughout the bunkering process and offers a range of solutions to avoid the problems in the first place or to find remedies once the damage is done.

Bunker Claims Management is designed to promote discussion and debate on the key issues, with the expert presenters sharing their ideas and experiences and inviting the delegates to contribute their own.
