On 16 March 2005 Shell launched Shellvoy 6, its updated form of tanker voyage charterparty. Shell’s stated intention is to include in the new form all current amendments issued since 1987 and to “clarify standard interpretations and practice”. Shell issued the new form together with an explanatory note and its standard template for recaps (both charter in and charter out) and accompanying notes as well as a note to brokers. The new charterparty form comprises three parts. Parts I and II form the main body of the form and Part III contains clauses for specific countries.

 

INTERTANKO’s Commentary on Shellvoy 6 is not comprehensive as it is confined to the material new amendments not previously circulating in the market and focuses on Parts I and II of the new form. It should be read in conjunction with INTERTANKO’s commentary on the SHELLVOY 5, that is published in A Guide to Tanker Charters, which remains relevant to many of the clauses in SHELLVOY 6.
