LLOYD’S LIST REVIEWS INTERTANKO’S ‘A GUIDE TO TANKER CHARTERS’

In an article entitled "Chartering explained for those at the sharp end" Lloyd's List today reviewed INTERTANKO's new publication 'A Guide to Tanker Charters' written by Harvey Williams.

It considered the commentaries very readable, explaining that the book is divided into a general commentary, a description of the common clauses in a tanker charter, before consideration of four voyage charter forms: Asbatankvoy (1969), BPvoy 4 (1998), ExxonMobilvoy 2000 and Shellvoy 5 (1987) . The section on timecharter contracts contains a general description of such issues as delivery and redelivery, hire, indemnities, performance, period of charter, safe ports and the like. BPtime3, Shelltime 4 and STBtime are the time charter forms presented along with their commentaries.

Lloyd's List comments:
"The particular value of this book is the way in which the author compares the various forms and their treatment of different elements in the charter parties"

and concludes:
"A useful and practical volume, written by an expert for industry practitioners, this seems certain to be a success."
