It is also the issue of injury: for example, if a drilling rig operator hopes (the above point) to claim compensation to recover an innocently acquired administrative fine, I assume that this can only be possible if the fine for a technical overrun has not been damaged or accompanied. Real criminal acts such as fraud are never covered. The big issue of oil and gas with respect to “administrative sanctions” or other sanctions for regulatory violations. As we have seen in recent events, these fines can be huge and the industry is of course looking into whether they are covered by allowances and exemptions. Over time, some legislators in the United States have found that such clauses can be painful and inappropriate in certain contexts, and have developed statutes that introduce limits and conditions for striking knock-out benefits. In Louisiana, Texas, New Mexico and Wyoming, the Oilfield Anti-Indemnity Acts expressly prohibit certain compensation agreements contained in or related to oil deposit contracts2. There are different types of compensation agreements: general compensation of the species, damage to the intermediate forest, limited damage to training, comparison, tacit etc. For example, questions may arise when there is dual insurance covering the same risk, such as liability insurance. B, which are managed by both the holder and the client with respect to injuries suffered by the client by workers, associated with compensation (para. B, for example, a tally of the counting allowance), when the contractor contractually compensates the customer for the damage caused by the client to the contractor`s employees.
Car rental companies often have drivers who sign a compensation contract before they drive the car in the lot. This must be protected from complaints if the driver ends up in an accident with the rental car. Of course, the industry is not primarily concerned about this type of situation. The real question is whether compensation and exemptions will work in serious situations of death, injury and pollution. The working hypothesis must be that they are not maintained in these situations.
