INDEX

The author is a Master Mariner, Lieutenant Commander (Res.) in the French Navy and Chevalier de l’Ordre du Mérite Maritime. He went to sea in 1960 as a cadet on small tankers and was deck officer on board large tankers. He then worked in the head office of the French shipping company of an international oil group, and he ran his company for its last five years. Thirty-five years spent in oil shipping have given him a passion for this work where he has met many like-minded people within a powerful industry which is currently meeting an unprecedented crisis after decades of prosperity.
