BIMCO publishes LNG fuel clauses for time charterparties
As the number of LNG-fuelled ships is growing, BIMCO has drafted LNG clauses for time charterparties covering matters related to LNG fuel quality, fuel delivery/redelivery, gas-freeing and cooling down and an operational clause. The following clauses have now been published:
• LNG Bunker Operational Clause for Time Charter Parties
• LNG Fuel Delivery Clause For Time Charter Parties,
• LNG Fuel Gas-freeing and Cool-down Clause, and
• LNG Fuel Quality Clause
For dual-fuel ships the clauses are intended to be used together with the existing BIMCO bunker clauses for conventional fuel oils.
