St Shipping & Transport Pte Ltd v Space Shipping Ltd

Shipping – Charterparty. The Commercial Court dismissed the claimant charterer's application for permission to appeal against the decision of an arbitrator regarding the financial consequences of the detention of the vessel that was the subject of an agreement between the parties. The arbitrator had not erred in his interpretation of the contract. Further permission to appeal had been required, and would be refused because the statutory criterion in the Arbitration Act 1996 had not been fulfilled.
