Carriers and other former customers of the now defunct bunker company OW Bunker will gain access to 3.7 million documents, which the Danish trustees, Pernille Bigaard from Plesner and John Sommer Schmidt from Gorrissen Federspiel, sent to OW Bunker's subsidiary in Germany, writes Danish daily Børsen.

This is how the parties aim to wade through the many complex legal cases launched after the bankruptcy. The documentation from OW Bunker Germany will be made searchable, so that carriers and other customers can use them in proceedings in the US against OW Bunker in an attempt to avoid having their ships seized, which has already happened in several cases.
