Web alert: Offshore Syndicate Claims Director contribution to the GI WACAF workshop in Gabon
04 December 2014
Fabien Lerede, Offshore Syndicate Claims Director, recently participated in a workshop on liability and compensation in Libreville, Gabon. The workshop was organised by The Global Initiative for West, Central and Southern Africa (GI WACAF Project). This is a partnership between the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and IPIECA, the global oil and gas industry association for environmental and social issues, which was established to enhance the capacity of countries to prepare for and respond to marine oil spills. More information can be found on their website.
The Sub-Regional workshop held in November 2014 focused on Gabon, Congo, Cameroon, Equatorial Guinea, and the Ivory Coast. During this three day workshop, Fabien gave presentations on the role of P&I clubs and the International Group regarding the Convention on limitation of liability for maritime claims (LLMC) or the Bunker convention, which were followed by case studies to illustrate the topic.
