15.06.2018 TGS Baltic represented AB Klaipėdos nafta in dispute against UAB Rudesta

TGS Baltic represented the respondent AB Klaipėdos nafta in dispute against UAB Rudesta. UAB Rudesta claimed from AB Klaipedos nafta for EUR 1 million payment for the additional works under the construction contract of tanks for dark oil products. 

The case is unique and important forming new case law applying public procurement laws on payments for additional construction works which are necessary and were not agreed by contract. The Supreme Court of Lithuania noted that the constructor is entitled to additional payments under the construction agreement only if works were agreed in writing and all public procurement procedures were implemented.

The court ruled out the written confirmation of the client requesting to perform additional works does not validate or grant payment, unless public procurement procedures would be implemented duly and in a timely manner. TGS Baltic represented the client in the courts of all instances, including the Supreme Court of Lithuania.
