Terminal Demurrage Masterclass
30–31 October 2014

When people think of demurrage, it is usually in relation to a shipowner’s claim under the charterparty when the charterer has exceeded the contractual laytime. However, in addition to this type of claim there are also demurrage claims under sale and purchase contracts for delays at load and discharge terminals. Consequently it is essential for everyone involved in terminal activities to be aware of the circumstances that can incur demurrage and to be aware how their actions/ inactions and even processing systems may contribute to demurrage.

Due to the complex geopolitical nature of gas/LNG sourcing and long term nature of gas transactions between buyers and sellers, it is commercially prudent for those involved in this process to know the global gas/LNG supply situation, available techniques for price determination, contract negotiation and contract structure to be able to take appropriate action regarding these matters at present and provide safeguard for the future. Any misjudgement in any of these areas could result in wrong sourcing decisions, significant adverse financial consequences and legal liabilities.

This course has, therefore, been designed to enable the professionals in the gas sector and gas advisory services to make right sourcing decision, construct gas/LNG contracts and negotiate from a position of strength and knowledge in order to gain a competitive edge in the process.
