 If the Admiralty Court, on the application of the Administrator and on notice to other interested parties as that Court considers just in the circumstances, is satisfied that, in respect of a particular occurrence, the aggregate liability of the Ship-source Oil Pollution Fund under sections 84, 86 and 88 and subsection 90(2) may exceed its limit of liability under section 91, that Court may

  • (a) order the exclusion of any claimants who do not file their claims with the Administrator within the time that that Court directs; and
