A former staff of Aker Solutions ASA (Norway), who had sued the oil services firm for alleged abuse of court process, has received the go-ahead to serve her court papers on her former employer in Europe.
A High Court order obtained by Seetha Kumarasamy last month, sighted by theedgemarket.com today, allows her to serve the documents out of Malaysia’s jurisdiction, and it is understood that she will do so after the documents are translated.
The Norwegian firm will have 21 days to respond to the suit upon receiving the documents.
Three Malaysian units of Aker Solutions, which have also been named as defendants in the suit, have already responded. They have appointed the legal firm of Skrine & Co to represent them.
Malaysia’s state-owned Petronas is on course to restart its 300,000 b/d Pengerang refinery joint venture with state-controlled Saudi Aramco in the first quarter of 2021, adding more capacity to a struggling Asia-Pacific refining market.
The Pengerang complex in southern Malaysia has been shut since a fire in March. Petronas said late last week that the project is transitioning to commercial operations and a restart of the refinery and petrochemical plants is planned for the first quarter of next year, in line with previous expectations.
The project’s atmospheric residue desulphurisation trains are also expected to be ready for start-up in the first quarter. Repairs are continuing on the diesel hydrotreater, which is targeted to come on line in October-December 2021. Aramco owns a 50pc stake in the project and will supply half of its crude, with the option to increase this to 70pc once the refinery is fully commissioned.
