This has been run in Singapore in April 2015 and at various venues around the world (Cartagena, Colombia (2014), London (2015, 2016) and as an in-house training course for Department for Transport (5 times during 2016 and upcoming in 2017).
This one-day course explains the basics of ships and the business of shipping and is suitable for new entrants to the bunker or maritime sector generally (not just shipping). It aims to educate and inform newcomers to shipping and those whose jobs require a basic grasp of how the industry works. So essentially more for bunker players to gain an understanding of how the full industry works, not just there segment. Invaluable insight into what the guy they are selling to needs.
Written and delivered by Nigel Draffin, who has been involved in shipping for almost 50 years, spending 13 years at sea with Shell Tankers before coming ashore to work first in their new building department at Shell International Marine, and then in Shell’s R&D unit specialising in control systems, fuel combustion and safety systems.
In 1986 he joined Shell’s commercial department becoming Head of Operational Economics responsible for fuel purchasing for the entire Shell fleet, the operation of risk management policy and the speed/performance of the fleet. In 1996 he retired from Shell and joined the bunker department of E.A. Gibson Shipbrokers which in 2006 merged with US-based broking house LQM Petroleum Services, where he was Senior Broker and Technical Manager until his retirement in July 2015.
