The project involved the EPC of a greenfield LNG terminal including major berthing facilities and onshore storage, processing, and pumping services. Provided lead contract and claims support to the joint venture EPC contractor to ensure recovery of owner-caused impacts throughout the construction process. This involved managing and defending a major claim from the international earthworks subcontractor through litigation proceedings in both the U.S. and Mexico. The scope of work further involved detailed rebuttal of schedule, disruption, and damages analyses.
