Marine Claims - A Guide for the Handling and Prevention of Marine Claims

   It is typical of our times and typical of the diverse man that Captain Christof Luddeke should have recognised the value and need for this book which so effectively covers the full scope of maritime operations. Typical of the man, who has such a special range of personal expertise and experience in the shipping industry, is the fact that in this book he recognises emphatically the aggregate value of the skills and knowledge of others and the need to make them both available and digestible. As leader of his team, whose individual reputations speak for themselves, his was the key role in judging what to include and, more importantly, what to omit. Typical of our times, the maritime industry in all its aspects, requires, now, as perhaps never before, professionalism of the highest order. Technology insists that data is available at once. Captain Luddeke has led his team of contributors to the common goal of providing immediately available information and expert comment. None of us can be expert in every maritime aspect and we each need help from others to be able to provide what commerce currently demands of us, whatever our individual area of professional responsibility. The first edition of this book, published in 1993, identified the requirement we all have for accurate information and expertise. That need grows daily and will never diminish, as this second edition exemplifies. This book gives us the comfort and confidence the better to do our job, whether it is ship operator, P & I manager, P & I correspondent, average adjuster, broker, surveyor or lawyer. Whatever our particular area of responsibility, we will be grateful for it. In presenting this book, Christof Luddeke classically represents the sentiment that anything can be achieved as long as the credit is shared.

World Cruising Routes

   Since this book was first published in 1987 I have received many positive comments and also some very valuable suggestions from sailors using it. Although in recent years I have not been able to sail as much as I would have liked, mainly because of my involvement with the various sailing events which I organise, it is this very involvement with all those hundreds of active sailors which has provided a rich and constant source of information on new cruising areas, unusual weather conditions, or less frequented sailing routes. I have also benefitted from the first hand experience gained during the first EUROPA Round the World Rally, some of which I sailed in my own La Aventura. All this information, gained both directly and indirectly, has been incorporated in this revised and expanded edition. By far the most important change that has occurred since this book was first published is the almost total dependence on satellite navigation in offshore sailing. Therefore all routes have been thoroughly revised in light of the ascendancy of satellite navigation. To simplify the planning of individual routes essential waypoints are listed. Several new routes have also been added as boats venture further afield and new cruising grounds are being discovered. Landfall information, as well as main ports of entry are also included to assist the planning of each passage from the beginning to its successful end. In many places routes have been regrouped by bringing together all routes originating from the same country or group of islands. For the sake of clarity, every such group has its own sketch map, so all sketch maps have been redrawn and now show not just the route itself but also the main distances.

Deep Marine Mineral Resources

   Major industrial developments are based on the availability of energy and minerals: iron in the 19th century, aluminium and copper in the 20th century, silicon and high-tech metals for the past twenty years. Today, glowing tensions are emerging between mineral availability and global requirements, especially in major industrial countries, which continue to rise in number and force. China's growth alone accounts for half of the rise in demand for base metals since 2000. Given the risks for Europe of supply shortages of strategic metals used in many high-tech industries, or even of certain common metals such as copper, it has become necessary to actively explore the potential of deep-sea mineral resources (DSMR). as a possible source in addition to known deposits on land. It is with this as a backdrop that I decided to launch a study, in September 2009. on this subject with a 2030 vision, focusing on the needs of France and Europe. France boasts a vast ocean territory, technological resources and long recognised skills in deep-sea exploration: it is therefore important that France continues to be a major player in this exploration, especially at a time when the conditions governing industrial development of this sector are being defined. Over twenty French partners, representing the sector's main players, were involved in this year-long study. I would like to thank them most sincerely for their investment in this collective effort. The issues addressed were both numerous and complex, as they concerned changes in the legal framework, supply and markets. the types of deep-sea geological sites liable to be exploited, the possible technologies and then impacts, all in an environment that remains poorly known and difficult to access.

Drafting of LNG Charters

   My topic today is the drafting of LNG charters. This may seem a bit of a dull topic but I would ask you to bear in mind that the charter hire for a new generation LNG vessel is around US$28 million per annum! Charters are often for 25 years, so it is important to get the drafting right. This is obviously a big topic and I will therefore concentrate on certain areas - the type of charter used, the relationship between the Owner, the Charterer, the Builder and the Banks, particular points to look for in long term charters, and dispute resolution - always important to a lawyer, but also to the client. First of all a little background. LNG is a rapidly growing market and in the area which I have some particular expertise, Qatar, there are interests in over 75 LNG vessels both built and to be delivered in the next few years. Traditionally, LNG chartering was done on the basis of an individual project, the sale contract was entered into between the Seller and the Buyer, LNG vessels were built to service that particular project and were on long term charter to the Charterer or an Affiliate of the Charterer. That has now begun to change, although I, personally, think it a little too early to talk about there being a spot market for LNG. There are now Contracts of Affreightment, short term time charters, voyage charters, cargo swaps and single cargo contracts. However, I think that the focus is still on the long term time charter and therefore that is what I am going to talk about today.

Report on the Effects of Fire on LNG Carrier Containment Systems

   Current LNG transportation practice provides for pressure relief systems, designed with credit for the tank's insulation in order to to prevent gas cargo pressurisation due to boil-off and fire, as per IMO IGC Code 8.5. However, it is uncertain to what extent any insulation degradation, in a fire situation, is taken into account in the design of PRV systems. As foam plastic insulation materials are subject to possible melting, degradation and/or ignition at temperatures lower than might be achieved during such fire exposure, there is concern that the PRV systems may not be capable of relieving the vapour flows that would result from the increased boil-off due to partial or total insulation failure. This SIGTTO publication covers following matters - the origins of the IGC Code, fire scenarios, LNG carrier pressure relief systems, simplified reapplication of the Code for loss of insulation, heat transfer into the tank; time based heat transfer, response of insulation materials to heat, and others.

Pump Characteristics and Applications

   In fact, every a pump is a machine that is used for moving liquid through a piping system and raising its pressure. Pumps can be also defined as machines using several energy transformations in order to increase the pressure of the fluid. The electricity is commonly used for powering an electric motor; however, there are some alternative forms of energy used to power the driver like fuel oil powering a diesel engine, high-pressure steam driving a steam turbine, high-pressure hydraulic fluid to power a hydraulic motor, and compressed air to drive an air motor. The present publication jas been dedicated to the pumps and covers following major aspects of pumping technology - introduction; hydraulics, selection, and curves; special hydraulic considerations; types and applications of centrifugal pumps; sealing systems; sealless pumps; life-cycle costs and energy conservation; special pump-related topics; installation, maintenance and operation; major pump suppliers in the US; conversion formulae.

Pipe Flow - A Practical and Comprehensive Guide

   This book provides practical and comprehensive information on the subject of pressure drop and other phenomena in fluid flow in pipes. The importance of piping systems in distribution systems, in industrial operations-and in modern power plants justifies a book devoted exclusively to this subject. The emphasis is on flow in piping components and piping systems where greatest benefit will derive from accurate prediction of pressure loss. A great deal of experimental and theoretical research on fluid flow in pipes and their components has been reported over the years. However, the basic methodology in fluid flow textbooks is usually fragmented, scattered throughout several chapters and paragraphs; and useful, practical information is difficult to sort out. Moreover, textbooks present very little loss coefficient data, and those that are given are desperately out of date. Elsewhere, experimental data and published formulas for loss coefficients have provided results that are in considerable disagreement. Into the bargain, researchers have not accounted for all possible flow configurations and their results are not always presented in a readily useful form. This book addresses and fixes these deficiencies.
