Additional Information

Knock-for-knock indemnity is reciprocal in nature and is based on ownership of property and personnel as opposed to allocating risk based on fault. Each party to an oil and gas contract agrees to take responsibility for and to indemnify the other party against injury and loss to its own property and personnel.
