Kambourov & Partners advises SALP in arbitration proceedings related to the development of a gas pipeline

Kambourov & Partners was engaged to provide legal advice and assistance to S.A.L.P. SOCIETA APPALTO LAVORI PUBBLICI S.P.A. - a leading Italian company specialised in the implementation of turnkey projects for the construction and the maintenance of methane networks in Italy and abroad. SALP, as main contractor, constructed the Dobrich-Silistra gas pipeline (80 km long pipeline of significant economic interest), financed by EBRD and the Bulgarian gas TSO Bulgartransgaz (on behalf of the State).

Following the successful commissioning of the gas pipe SALP initiated an arbitration dispute against Bulgartransgaz regarding SALP’s costs related to the project. In February 2019, the proceedings were decided in favour of SALP. Kambourov & Partners successfully assisted the parties in reaching an amicable settlement in view of their future commercial relations.
