21 July - JTP presentation on Common Structural Rules for Double Hull Oil Tankers, London

Another presentation on the Joint Tanker Project's Common Structural Rules for Double Hull Oil Tankers has been organised in London by Lloyd's Register for those who missed the 28 June presentation in London. It will take place on 21 July 2004 from 10.00 a.m. at 71 Fenchurch Street, LondonEC3M 4BS.

Implementation of the forthcoming Common Rules for Oil Tankers, developed jointly by Lloyd's Register, Det Norske Veritas and the American Bureau of Shipping, will have a significant impact on future tanker new building projects. The rules, which are due to enter force on 1 July 2005, will apply to all double-hull tankers of 150 metres and over in length, contracted from that date.

Lloyd's Register will give a series of papers designed to provide an overview of new rules followed by a more in-depth review. The papers will explain key technical aspects of the new rules and how they compare with existing rules for this ship type. Each presentation will be given by an expert from the Lloyd's Register Group, and the day will conclude with a forum for questions to be raised concerning the subjects covered.

The topics to be covered include:-
- An introduction to the new rules
- Background to developing the rules
- The principles involved
- New concepts and approaches in the rules
- The implications for the industry such as increased steel weight and associated costs
- The benefits to you for your newbuilding tanker, as a ship owner, operator or builder.

The initial overview presentation will last approximately one hour and members are welcome to simply attend this one session if their time available is short. A buffet lunch will be served, together with refreshments throughout the course of the day.

Please advise Lloyd's Register in advance of your intentions to attend all or part of the day by either telephoning +44 20 7423 2309, or by emailing:

5-6 October INTERTANKO/Mare Forum Seminar on Maritime Transportation of Energy from Russia and Central Asia, St. Petersburg

With the development of extensive energy sources in the Russian Federation and Central Asia, the whole global energy balance, long aligned to the dominance of the Middle East is subtly changing.

Mare Forum 2004 will be an opportunity to consider commercial, financial and technical aspects of this contemporary energy challenge. It will endeavour to assess the reality of the energy prospects, the geo-political ramifications of this potential tilt in the energy axis and the investment opportunities thus produced.

It will consider the technical problems relating from the need to exploit energy resources in extreme climates, the need to develop robust and safe ships and other delivery systems, and the importance of protecting fragile natural environments in both the energy producing areas, and those en route to the importing countries.
