In a rare appeal from an Arbitration Award, Lukoil Asia Pacific Pte Limited v Ocean Tankers (Pte) Limited [2018] EWHC 163 (Comm) (the “OCEAN NEPTUNE”) is an example of a dispute over the exact nature of a claim, and highlights other issues around time bars. 
London Arbitration 3/18 [(2018) 995 LMLN 1] is a compact and varied package containing the notorious issue of a time bar, the familiar topics of repudiation, NOR validity and damages when a fixture is not performed, and a rare attempt to argue contract affirmation. It is unusual to find so much in one place. 
London Arbitration 27/17 [(2017) 987 LMLN 4] is a straightforward time calculation amid a routine shortlanding claim. It is also an illustration of the meshed trinity of charter party, bill of lading and sales contract, with demurrage often a common thread. 
The brief report of London Arbitration 26/17 [(2017) 987 LMLN 3] is a reminder of how damages are assessed in a charterparty claim when supply chain or other sale contract difficulties force Charterers to release a vessel for which they cannot present cargo. 
Another recent London Arbitration Award considers common force majeure wording, and rejects an attempt to turn amended safe berth provisions into a “reachable on arrival” warranty.
