Petroleo Brasileiro SA (Petrobras) v. Petromec Inc [2013] EWCA Civ 150

This is an archived article, and some links may not work. Contact us if you have any questions.

On 5 March 2013 the Court of Appeal allowed Petrobras’s appeal against the judgment of Field J on a number of preliminary issues arising out of the upgrade of the semi-submersible production platform “P-36”. This appeal is the latest stage in this on-going and complex litigation arising out of the upgrade and then sinking of P-36 off the coast of Brazil in 2001. The principal issues on the appeal related to the construction and effect of deviations to the specification relating to the gas compression system and risers. The Court of Appeal (Rix, Moore-Bick and Lewison LLJ) adopted Petrobras’s construction on both issues.


Members of Chambers: Christopher Hancock QC and Malcolm Jarvis represented Petrobras (instructed by Akin Gump LLP).
