Description

Marine Fuels: Preventing Claims and Disputes 

This guide highlights what can go wrong when purchasing, bunkering and using marine fuels and the steps that can be taken to avoid disputes and mitigate their impact. 

It examines each stage of the supply chain, including the production and characteristics of fuel oil, contracts, transfer and handling operations, quantity and quality assessment, onboard storage and environmental compliance. It considers the impact of the 2020 global sulphur cap, with a particular focus on the increasing use of LNG as a marine fuel. 

The guide also discusses collection of evidence relating to quality and quantity disputes and advises on claims management. 

The appendices set out recommended BIMCO clauses, standard letters and no lien provisions.
