Offshore oil rig and drilling claims continue to be an ongoing issue in the UK as well as abroad.
With offshore oil fields owned all, or in part, by British concerns, companies and contractors are faced with unforeseen factors affecting the ongoing drilling and transport of oil.
Sometimes issues impeding progress are geopolitical and other times faulty equipment calls a halt to production. In any case, the expert analysts at the Kenzie Group are able to step in to negotiate an amicable solution to the claim.
Dispute resolution in offshore oil rig and drilling claims is a highly specialised field and one we are prepared to handle thoroughly and efficiently.
Labour disputes are not uncommon and often the cause of delays in production. When it comes to offshore oil rig construction delay analysis, we often find that disputes are more intricate than they appear on the surface.
Under the leadership of chartered quantity surveyor, Joseph Bond, we are able to assess the losses accrued due to delays and help to discover ways of mitigating those losses.
Whether faulty equipment was the ultimate cause of delays or an inability to work in difficult weather or geopolitical conditions, we can find an agreed way forward for all involved
Although offshore oil platform construction wrapped up more than a couple decades ago in the North Sea, these existing platforms are continually being tied into smaller, sub-sea drilling stations.
As a result, tying into a main platform can create unforeseen delays, ultimately affecting the rate at which oil can be drilled and piped back to the mainland. These types of delays can affect cost and time projections and almost always result in a prolongation claim.
Whether stemming from cost overruns, delays in tie-in projected timeframes or environmental concerns, it takes the expert analysts and negotiators of the Kenzie Group to begin dialogue toward an acceptable resolution to highly contested claims.
Offshore oil rig drilling platform Extension of Time (EoT) claims are often the result of problems which arise when establishing tie-ins from new sub-sea drilling platforms.
Anything from weather to the procurement of equipment and/or materials can cause a delay in progress, which would result in the need for an EoT.
The Kenzie team are expert in negotiating amicable resolutions to EoT claims, as well as in offering an analysis to mitigate losses going forward.
