Oil Wars

   Iraq is sitting on top of the second-largest proven oil reserves in the world. It may possess up to a quarter of total world reserves, and it has the potential in the future to become the world's largest oil exporter. Supporters of the war, while denying that military action in Iraq was initiated to control its oil, do assert that these massive reserves are of vital strategic interest to the West, and thus the installation of a friendly regime in Iraq is essential for national security. Overthrowing Saddam Hussein, creating a stable state in Iraq and opening up its oil for exploitation, they argue, are central to a broader effort to secure access to global oil resources, especially in the energy heart of the world - the Middle East/Central Asian region. Most opponents of the war cite Iraq's immense resources as a significant factor in the onset of war, and criticise the willingness of some Western governments to kill Iraqis and risk the lives of their own citizens to secure access to these resources. Whatever role security of oil supplies played in the thinking of policy makers, three years after the invasion it is evident that the global energy supply is neither more stable nor more secure. Iraq's oil output and exports have barely reached their low pre-war levels, while the war itself and the associated instability it has generated in the region has sent oil prices soaring to new heights. Despite promises to the contrary, they have stayed high over an extended period of time. As Iraq threatens to descend into chaos and become like another ungovernable Afghanistan, Al Qaeda and other terrorist groups are now in a better position to disrupt oil supplies from the entire region.

Prevention of Pollution of the Marine Environment from Vessels

   This book explores the role of the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) as facilitator of the adoption and implementation of international legal instruments for the protection of the marine environment. While several studies have examined different aspects of the international legal regime concerning vessel-source marine pollution, none have presented a research monograph particularly emphasising or critically examining the role of IMO in the protection of the marine environment and the emerging challenges in fulfilling this role. This book aims to fill that gap. It contributes to this aspect of international legal scholarship, with particular emphasis on the north-south tensions IMO is currently facing. This book also presents an overview of the IMO legal instruments and their implementation process. It will work as a guide for the implementation of IMO marine environmental legal instruments. This book is likely to interest environmental lawyers, international lawyers and those involved with environmental governance. This includes academics, governments, international organisations and non-governmental organisations. Apart from the research and academic community, this book may be useful for government officials who are involved with national implementation of IMO marine environmental legal instruments, particularly officials of coast guards and maritime administrations. Although it is a research monograph, this book may be used as a prescribed text for training programs for government officials, and as a recommended text for postgraduate courses on marine environmental law. While writing this book, particular emphasis has been given to fulfilling the demands of the target readership.

Port Economics

   Port economics is the study of the economic decisions (and their consequences) of the users and providers of port services. Port users include shippers, passengers, and carriers. Port (or terminal) operators are the primary service providers; other service providers include, for example, ship agents, customs brokers, ship pilots and towage, stevedores and freight forwarders. Maritime economics consists of port and shipping economics. This book is an introduction to port economics. Although a textbook, it is expected to be useful in maritime research, to port user and service-provider decision makers, and to those of the general public who are interested in port issues. In 1984,1 and two other business professors established the center, Maritime, Trade and Transport (MTT), at Old Dominion University. Given that Norfolk, Virginia (where the university is located) has one of the largest container ports on the U.S. east coast, the center's mission was to perform high-quality maritime research to promote the Port of Virginia and international trade in the region. Prior to 1984, although a transportation economist. I was not a student of maritime economics. However, MTT provided me with the opportunity to become knowledgeable in the subject. In 1986, MTT was renamed the Virginia Center for World Trade and established as an economic development agency of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Given the success of MTT, the International Maritime. Ports, and Logistics Management Institute (Maritime Institute) was established in 1994 at Old Dominion University to provide graduate maritime management education - a maritime concentration in the Master in Business Administration and Master in Public Administration degrees and a maritime management certificate.

Behavior and Handling of Ship

   In order to know the possibilities and limitations of the big tankers, one should have an opportunity to try (hem out without a risk. Such an opportunity does, in fact, exist at the Shiphandling Training Center at Port Revel near Grenoble. France, where a fleet of model tankers in scale one to twenty-five is operated on a lake. Not only do ship models offer a unique opportunity to handle scale replicas of big tankers under different conditions, but they also offer an instructive overall view on the manoeuvre in a protracted time. As a consequence of working in scale, there is a lot of shiphandling in this miniature world in a comparatively short time, as the action—in the one to twenty-five scale—is five times faster than in real life. While I was observing and analyzing the manoeuvres on the lake, it became clear to me that the position of the pivot point plays a crucial role in explaining the ship's behaviour. When the actual pivot point is taken into account, every movement of the ship can be seen as a logical result of the effect offerees acting on the ship. Scale model and prototype are affected in the same way insofar as forces under control, the natural element water and the capriciousness of wind-force and wind direction are concerned. There is. of course, the difference in size and time scale, but the outcome of the manoeuvre is the same, in performance as well as in sensation. Sidon, Lebanon, offered me an opportunity to come back to the real ships. And, I experienced again the similarity of the real ship to the model as I had before experienced the similarity of the model to the real sliip when I came from the busy oil-handling port of Aruba to the Ship-handling Training Center. Although I had never handled a ship in a conventional sea berth, the operation was familiar to me because of practice on the lake at Port Revel...

Ports in Proximity - Competition and Coordination Among Adjacent Seaports

   In December 2007 the Institute of Transport and Maritime Management Antwerp (ITMMA) of University of Antwerp and the Department for Regional, Port and Transport Economics of Erasmus University Rotterdam jointly organized a conference on the theme "Ports in proximity". The theme of ports in proximity is highly relevant: while most of the port users are international companies, most ports are governed by local institutions. While competition between ports is healthy and contributes to port efficiency, cooperation between ports, and especially ports in proximity, may be beneficial for port authorities and port users alike. The topic is especially relevant in the Rhine-Scheldt Delta, a region where the two largest ports of Europe (Rotterdam and Antwerp) are located, as well as other large European ports such as Ghent. Zeebrugge and Zeeland Seaports. The ports of Antwerp and Rotterdam are market leaders partly because of then market-orientation and their commitment to operational excellence, good governance and a well-balanced stakeholder policy. At the same time, the ports strengthen each other through the competitive process, but also by fully benefiting from existing synergies between the two large port complexes. While competition among the ports in the Delta remains fierce, various forms of cooperation and coordination have developed over the years. For instance, cooperation between Rotterdam and Zeeland Seaports in the joint exploitation of port land, cooperation between the Flemish ports mainly in the field of marketing and cooperation between Port of Rotterdam and Port of Amsterdam in the area of Port Community Systems. While it is still unclear to what extent and how cooperation will develop, it is certain that the Rhine-Scheldt Delta will remain an important laboratory for this type of research.

Maritime Diplomacy in the 21st Century - Drivers and Challenges

   Gunboat diplomacy is a term that seems most suited to a bygone era. The phrase conjures up images of European warships, sitting askance off the coast of a developing country, occasionally bombarding coastal forts in order to exact recompense. It seems to be a quasi-oxymoronic term used by powerful states to veil their bullying, imperial tactics, in an era when military inequality and insufficient international law allowed brazen acts of intimidation. This seems increasingly irrelevant as the unipolarity of the 1990s and early 2000s is ceding ground to a progressively more multipolar world, meaning that the former victims of imperialism, particularly in Asia, are now able to deal with then erstwhile colonial rulers. Yet, gunboat diplomacy is not an activity or an idea confined to history. Gunboat diplomacy has been used by both developed and developing countries in recent years. It maintains its relevance through its utility: gunboat diplomacy is a pursuit that allows actors to coerce others while avoiding large-scale conflict and its attendant costs. Recent examples abound. In December 2011 and January 2012. ban held the Velayat 90 naval exercises, which showcased a variety of naval capabilities. from anti-ship missiles to submarines. The stated intent of the exercises was to demonstrate (and therefore implicitly threaten) an ability to close the Strait of Honnuz. the world's most important maritime chokepoint. Just days later, the USS Abraham Lincoln, one of the world's largest warships, sailed through the strait flanked by American cruisers and destroyers, while a British and a French frigate also accompanied her. The transit was part of a routine rotation of a US aircraft earner in the Persian Gulf, but the international flavour of the flotilla was a strong message of unity among the Western allies in the face of overt Iranian threats...

Maritime Piracy and Its Control - An Economic Analysis

   Everyone knows that piracy is the oldest of the international crimes, and in international law pirates are regarded as the "enemies of mankind". While prevalent in the XVII and XVIII centuries, piracy has not gone away. Today it primarily afflicts the waters off two continents, namely West and East Africa and Southeast Asia, but it can and does strike worldwide at any time. It is a very serious threat to international shipping, imposing high financial costs as well as costs in terms of welfare and even human life. Over the past ten years three thousand or more pirate attacks (actual or attempted), have been reported, with annual costs estimated to be in the range of $6-$7 billion. This amount is actually down from as much as $16 billion just a few years ago—due in large part, we believe, to the increasing use of on-board armed guards. Still, the problem remains a significant one that has bedeviled international efforts at enforcing anti-piracy laws. The purpose of this monograph is to use economic methods both to describe the nature of maritime piracy and to understand the difficulties involved in organizing optimal enforcement efforts. Using economic theory to understand the motivation for, and control of, maritime piracy is a direct application of the economic theory of law enforcement, which is a sub-field within the area of law and economics...
