BP Oil International Ltd v Target Shipping Ltd (The “Target”) – QBD (Comm. Ct.), 14 Jun 2012

BPVOY 4 -- REASONABLE OVERAGE FREIGHT -- EXCESS FREIGHT PAID -- RECOVERY OF OVERPAYMENT -- MISTAKE AT LAW -- Partial Charterer Award Charterer sought to recover a million dollars of excess freight paid on the Owner’s purportedly miscalculated invoice.
