About this Virtual Instructor Led Training (VIL
Despite the falling oil prices, the demand for both LPG and LNG has been growing at a steady pace in Asia. There is a sharp increase in the number of LPG tankers as compared to LNG Tankers trading from GOM, M-E to Asian routes. The focus is now on use of LPG vessels specific Charter Party Agreements, to avoid the ambiguity of dormant clauses when adopting commonly used Charter Party Forms for Oil Tankers.
This VILT is exclusively developed and regularly updated “by and for” the professionals, engaged in niche segments of LPG Tankers (Ship Owners, Charterers, Terminal Operators and Brokers) for LPG related cargoes. Whether freight rates are high or inadequate to meet daily running costs of a vessel, the terms of engagement or the Charterparty must be reviewed microscopically. One has to ensure that all risks are well apportioned and appropriately mitigated. The number of intermediaries and multi-party transactions impose new and unknown risks for LPG Tanker Owners and Stakeholders in the Value Chain.
In this VILT, the participants will be able to share and acquire new expertise from real life experiences, enabling them to deal better with the contemporary challenges facing gas export, import and transportation by LPG Tankers.
This VILT is developed to meet the need of the hour for the LPG Gas Tankers and Terminals operators’ fraternity, encompassing the following underlying objectives:
- Enhance the interpretation and applicability of clauses in a Charterparty in context of the available commercial proposition, market forces and economics of demand and supply;
- Edit relevant and most appropriate type of Charterparty Form for Voyage and Time Charter and comprehend the key features of each Form in context of its use for LPG;
- Interpret terms and conditions of a Charterparty in context of international maritime conventions, competition and economic factors;
- Incorporate influencing attributes of current and future trends in LPG transportation and the influence of regulatory regimes and strategies of Oil & Gas Majors, Spot Traders and Storage Terminals;
- Recognize the avenues of collaboration, contentions, conflicts and manage disputes to avoid losses;
- Manage operations towards ensuring delivery of performance obligations under the Charterparty; and
- Create a Charterparty Management System (CMS) in the company to ensure profitability for each voyage and duration of charter.
