    Dibden extension

    What size ship is the Dibden extension planned for?

    Has the MOD looked at the implications for larger ships to be able to use Marchwood?

      The way ship crews, especially masters and chief engineers, are easy targets for legal action is a good reason for seafarers to pursue an alternative career IMO. I've seen it in the offshore oil industry time and time again, sh*t goes down and unfortunately in offshore oil the bottom of the ladder in terms of easy targets to blame are the PSV and AHTSS vessels with the result time and time again they're blamed for screw ups that are primarily the responsibility of oil companies.

        How 'tight' is the global shipping market, what effects would closure of the Suez or Panama Canals have forcing ships to make a long detour around the Capes.

        Same goes for the Malacca Strait, there are alternatives here but they still would be a detour.

          The market is pretty "tight" I've been working in the shipment industry for a couple of year now, but apart for costs and delivery time increase, there shouldn't be any other negative implications.
