Maritime response organisations often charge tankers a premium, but whatever justification there may be for hiking the prices for some response services (e.g. oil spill response), tankers should not be charged an inflated rate for media response.
It appears that many tanker operators are so used to paying a little more for almost everything that they don’t question a quote for media response services that blatantly charges them more for the tankers in their fleet.
Tanker owners/managers need to start demanding fair pricing.
