Course programme

Case studies

Super Boat (SB) is the owner of the specialist offshore construction vessel. The ship is currently under construction and close to delivery at a well-known yard. SB chartering department receives an enquiry from Rotterdam Offshore Contractors (ROC) as they are looking for a vessel of similar specification for a project in West Africa.

ROC proposes a three-year charter party, with options for two more, at favourable day rates. The contract shall be based on the SUPPLYTIME 2017 form, with a range of amendments, including a larger heave compensated crane and on-board project specific equipment, to be equipped before the vessel departs for West Africa.  Some of this equipment will be operated on board by ROC or its sub-contractors’ personnel.

How do the owners protect themselves, and at the same time be seen to accommodate the charterers requirements in a very attractive deal? These are just some of the aspects of one of the cases in the course.

In the case studies, you will work in small groups to consider the scenario and a range of problems that arise. The cases will be a focus for dialogue and will help the participants see how amendments to SUPPLYTIME can serve different purposes for various parties.

Why choose to participate?

You will be taught by hand-picked industry experts who have built a career out of solving complicated commercial disputes in the energy offshore sector.

The combination of theory, discussion and casework will make using SUPPLYTIME forms clearer and more manageable. The trainers will share valuable experiences and point participants towards practical solutions, which can be used on the job. The course will also facilitate networking between international shipping peers and enable long-term learning relationships between the participants.

How will this course help your professional development?

SUPPLYTIME is the benchmark for offshore support vessel agreements – and the industry’s contract of choice. It has also been widely adopted by other sectors looking for a contract offering a comprehensive knock-for-knock framework. This course will assist you in identifying how the form works when being used for a wide variety of tasks, thereby helping you to understand and explain your own risks and exposure. You will be able to discuss issues, such as unused maintenance days at the conclusion of the charter, lay-up provisions and the revised knock-for knock provisions with your superiors, P&I club or legal counsel.

Course certification

Participants will be given an option of taking a final assessment (1-hour open-book test) at the end of the course, and Certificate of Achievement will be issued with a grade (distinction, merit or pass). Those not taking the assessment will receive a Certificate of Attendance.
