Strait talking: Security against the backdrop of Grace 1 and Stena Impero


Join BIMCO's Jakob Larsen, INTERTANKO's Philip Belcher, UK Chamber of Shipping's David Balston, and Tatham Law's Stephen Askins for a candid discussion and clear advice on present and future tanker safety, security and commercial issues in the Straits of Hormuz and Gulf of Oman.

The webcast contains a 48 minute long discussion which evolves around questions like:

  • the use of armed guards,
  • the use of citadels,
  • if and how to oppose boardings from state actors,
  • charter parties and who pays for the use of speed as a defensive measure, and
  • the unpredictable nature of the threat.
