Singapore-based specialist international shipping and commodity law firm Helmsman LLC is organising a Masterclass on commodity trading contracts at the SMU Law Academy in March 2021.
The Masterclass is designed for experienced commodity trading personnel (legal, credit, risk, compliance, traders and operations) interested in developing a deeper understanding and higher level of expertise in commodity trading contracts.
Participants should have at least an intermediate level (3 years and up) of experience in commodity trading.
“Commodity trading law is fast emerging as a specialist practice. This area of law is particularly important to Singapore, being a major international commodity trading hub,” a Helmsman spokeswoman told Manifold Times.
“The commodity trading contract is a vital document for commodity traders. Often, it determines who makes and who loses money when things go wrong. It is a complex document and its implications are often overlooked.”
The six-hour course will be taught by class-leading commodities trading specialist lawyers – Ian Teo (Managing Director, Helmsman LLC) and Chen Zhida (Associate Director, Helmsman LLC) – who will share real life case studies and experience to illustrate the practical application of commodities trading law.
The one-day course is seminar-based and revolve around hypothetical problems based on real life cases discussed in an interactive setting.
The issues which will be discussed in-depth include:

Fast Energy Sdn Bhd is currently exploring collaboration with a major Malaysian bunker supply firm operating at Port Klang; the operation will be supported by CCK Petroleum upon finalisation.
Veritas Petroleum Services records numerous contaminants such as plastic, fibres, black gum, paraffins, fatty acids, and other component found in the off-spec RMK 700 marine fuel.
All bunker vessels that have received the necessary clearance for out of port bunkering operations may do so at the stated Tompok Utara coordinates only or risk penalty, according to the MMEA.
The COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve and MPA is working closely with other agencies to monitor the situation, both globally and in Singapore, the port authority tells Manifold Times.
Caroline Yang, President of SSA, addresses issues earlier raised by players; including PMC No. 04, the seven-day restriction, contactless bunkering, sampling point, hose connection, and more.
IBIA Asia, ABIS, sources from Singapore’s bunkering and surveying companies, and an industry veteran share with Manifold Times the issues expected from MPA’s latest Covid-19 measures.
