An Introduction to Bunkering

New Edition ISBN: 9780954809713
Published: July 2008
Publisher: Petrospot Ltd
Country of Publication: UK
Format: Paperback
Price: Out of print

This is a book that will sit comfortably on the desk of anyone who has to deal with the bunkering of ships, whatever their experience or training, where they can find simple answers to complicated questions.

It is packed with useful and relevant data, practical illustrations and enough pictures to help anyone understand exactly what bunkering is all about, yet it is simply written, easy to read, and completely up to date.

The information in this book is just as relevant to vessel charterers, ship operators, marine lawyers and port agents as it is to buyers and sellers of marine fuel.

Nigel Draffin has been involved in shipping for over 42 years and with the commercial bunker market for over 22 years, and knows these markets thoroughly. He is a founder member of the International Bunker Industry Association (IBIA) and has served on its council of management. He is co-ordinator of IBIA's Education Working Group, and the author of IBIA's Basic Bunkering Course. He is also the Technical Director of the Oxford Bunker Course, a member of the Institute of Marine Engineering Science and Technology and Past Master of the Worshipful Company of Fuellers.
