An Introduction to Marine Bunker Claims Management, 1st Edition 2019
Marine fuel claims can be costly and time consuming. As the potential for fuel quality and availability issues comes to the fore in the run-up to the 2020 0.50% global sulphur cap, it is more important than ever to know how to respond to and manage a bunker claim.
In this important and timely new book, marine fuels expert Nigel Draffin reviews the major categories of claims and analyses the bunker contract, terms and conditions and respective counterparty positions. He then guides the reader through the key steps in managing a claim, from evidence-gathering, to mitigation, through to resolution. He also gives practical advice for fuel buyers and sellers in the event that a claim goes wrong.
The book also gives a checklist of other routes to dispute resolution, such as mediation and arbitration.
