Workshop One - The Practical, Technical & Legal Aspects of Bunkering
This one-day advanced bunkering workshop delivers the highest level of teaching at a very affordable rate. The information-packed course focuses on bunker delivery procedures, ship operations and legal matters, from a practical and hands-on viewpoint. The course involves discussion, feedback, interactive case studies and informative lectures.
This course is led by well-known industry expert Chris Fisher, Managing Director of Bunker Claims International, a key lecturer on the Oxford Bunker Course and the Bunker Arbitration Experience, and co-author of the world's best-selling book on marine fuels, Bunkers - An Analysis of the Practical, Technical & Legal Issues.
Workshop Two - Emissions from Ships: Dealing with a New Environment
This specially-produced one-day environmental workshop focuses on emissions from ships and the impact that environmental legislation is having on shipping and bunkering operations. It examines marine emissions from both a buyer's and a supplier's perspective and looks closely at the legislation that has already been introduced, and that which is about to be introduced. California, Japan, the North Sea and Baltic and - importantly - the Mediterranean Sea - are all studied in depth.
The workshop looks hard at bunker and fuel oil supply and demand, and at prices and sulphur premiums - where they are now and where they may be once the next layer of legislation kicks in.
The Bunker Arbitration Experience
And on 9 May Petrospot presents a unique training event highlighting key bunkering and legal issues, comprising technical papers and a 'live' bunker arbitration, using real situations, local attorneys and qualified arbitrators. This specially-created event is designed to inspire serious debate and discussion on the wide variety of issues - technical, operational, practical, commercial and legal - that characterise everyday bunker disputes.
The 'live' bunker arbitration programme will be adapted to the local market referencing relevant real situations, using local attorneys and arbitrators.
The Bunker Arbitration Experience has already been performed to great acclaim in New York, Panama and Hamburg and provides a first class training opportunity for all - from director-level delegates, to relative beginners.
