Treaty arbitration concerning EPC services

Pipes Oil and Gas

In a matter before the Permanent Court of Arbitration, Dr. Tiago Duarte-Silva was retained in a dispute concerning allegedly unpaid costs of several projects in the oil and gas sector for two State-owned companies. The respondent had entered into various agreements with the claimant, a project management consultant (PMC), to facilitate engineering, procurement, and construction work (EPC) on some of the projects. The projects were undertaken to increase refining capacity towards reducing the respondent’s reliance on importing oil and gas products to satisfy domestic demand. Dr. Tiago Duarte-Silva was supported by Isabel Serrano Alas and Selina Luu.
