Advising owner of largest petro-chemical plant ever to be constructed in single phase


We represent the owner of the world’s largest petro-chemical plant ever to be constructed in one phase, and are advising on all contentious construction matters arising out of the EPC contracts.  Claims exceed $2 billion and are made by some of the largest international EPC contractors from Italy, Korea, Japan, India, Turkey and Spain.  The disputes are varied and include the scope of works, entitlements following certain changes of law, performance issues, and delayed construction.  Conducting a rigorous campaign alongside internationally renowned experts, we have settlement for many claims on terms favourable to the client.  Other claims are proceeding in an arbitration in London under ICC rules.
