Shipping gathering in Brisbane
Svetlana Androsova (pictured), a commercial advisor with a large
gas company in Brisbane and the Institute's Australia and New
Zealand Branch representative in Queensland, organised a shipping
gathering in Brisbane in August 2016.
Shipbrokers, charterers representatives and a maritime lawyer
got together for a few beers at the famous "Pig & Whistle
Riverside" pub located at the Eagle Street Pier on the Brisbane
river. On a warm, end of Brisbane "winter" evening the current
market situation of dry cargo and LNG shipping was discussed as
well as how shipping cycles (hopefully) work.
The current low oil price environment and perspective of the oil
markets was of interest to all attendees. After more beers (the
Australian "Little Creatures" ale took the Gran Prix), accompanied
by plates loaded with chips and chicken wings, ex LNG vessel
Masters shared a few stories about incidents at sea.
