Farstad Supply As v Enviroco Ltd and Another: SCS 23 Apr 2008

(Outer House) The pursuers alleged that the defendant service company was responsible in negligence for damage by fire to its oil rig supply vessel. It was said that oil they had failed to clear was released by piping when opened flowing onto a hot engine and igniting. The defenders sought contributions from the pursuers for the failings of its own employees, and from third party charterparties.
Held: After a debate on the assumed facts, Lord Ordinary, Lord Hodge, held that Enviroco was not entitled to a contribution from Asco.
