Norwegian Gas Carriers AS v. Etoxyl CA (The “Norgas Discoverer”) – SMA No. 3374, 18 Jun 1997

WARSHIPOILVOY -- CARGO -- DEMURRAGE -- DISPORT -- OFFSHORE STORAGE -- LOADPORT -- CONTAMINATION -- Charterer Award Because the cargo was contaminated, the Charterers used the Vessel as an offshore storage facility while filtering the cargo into a useful form. The Owners argue that contamination came from the loadport’s inferior steel railcars, and therefore claim this extensive delay at disport as demurrage. The Charterers contended that the disport samples prove that the contamination occurred on the Vessel and counterclaimed for cargo damages.
