dc.description.abstractRecent developments, such as the OW Bunker litigation and the furore surrounding the Australian decision in the Sam Hawk, have made it particularly necessary to re-examine the tenuous relationships and terms which underpin bunker transactions. This thesis is concerned with one aspect which has caused particular concern for suppliers and shipowners; the ability of the supplier to access security in the vessel by way of a US choice of law clause when the time charterer has failed to pay for the bunkers. To put it more precisely, the research question to be addressed is the following; how effective is a choice of US law in a bunker supply contract between the supplier and time charterer for the supplier’s ability to access a maritime lien over the vessel? In answering this question, this thesis will also step back and consider whether these clauses could be made more effective and evaluate whether necessaries liens in general are the most practicable mechanism for the supplier to secure payment.eng
