INTERTANKO lecture on ‘The needs and effects of incident management and media response plans’, 9 December 2003, London

Proper media engagement following a crisis is ever more crucial and today involves not only potentially crippling liabilities but also issues of criminality. INTERTANKO is therefore planning a series of lectures for members, examining cases with those who have had to face up to media scrutiny in a crisis. They can thereby share their experiences and the lessons learned, and provide a perspective on the way forward for others who may find themselves in similar circumstances.

In the first of these lectures, ‘The COONEY Lecture’, Captain Peter Cooney, who is widely acknowledged as having presided over one of the most successful media operations in relation to the “Sea Empress” casualty in Milford Haven in 1996, shares his experiences. He talks for the first time about how the operation was handled, about the strategy formulated, and about the pressures that had to be faced, as well the forward planning that took place well before the event.

Equally important, Captain Cooney will look at the media dimension when confronting the current issues of ‘security’, ‘potential for terrorist attacks’ and ‘criminality’ and will give his views on how to handle the media when they come knocking at the door.

This London lecture, which is free to INTERTANKO members, should not be missed as it provides a unique look behind the scenes of a major casualty.

The lecture will take place on 9 December 2003, 1100 – 1400 hours (with buffet lunch) at INTERTANKO’s London office, St Clare House, 30-33 Minories, London EC3N 1DD.

Numbers are limited so please register early.

INTERTANKO’s Short Sea Tanker Group meeting, 11 December 2003, London

INTERTANKO’s Short Sea Tanker Group will meet at INTERTANKO’s London Office on 11 December 2003. The Group was set up to provide a forum for independent short sea tanker owners.

At its previous meeting the agenda covered the following issues: the possible effects of the Prestige accident on single-hull phase-out, age restrictions, liability and the carriage of heavy oils. Also discussed were: terminal vetting, under keel clearance restrictions and MARPOL Annex II revisions, air emission regulation, emissions trading and membership quality criteria.

INTERTANKOTanker Seminar, 29-30 January 2004, Moscow

Mid-winter in Moscow could be an interesting time for those interested in Russia’s oil business. If you expect to be involved with the transportation of oil from the Former Soviet Union or if you are interested in how this trade will impact the tanker market, you should register for our Tanker Seminar in Moscow 29 and 30 January 2004.

The seminar is being held at the invitation of the Russian Minister of Transport, Mr. Sergei Frank, who has kindly agreed to open it. The programme will cover the Former Soviet Union (FSU) oil market and tanker transportation from the various FSU regions, with an emphasis on the commercial, operational and environmental challenges created by the FSU’s expanding oil exports.

The seminar will be open to all members, associate members and contacts. It would help us considerably if you could give an early indication of your interest in attending to Erik Ranheim.
