Expert Economist in arbitration case on gas pricing
Our client was a large industrial manufacturer using piped gas as an energy source. A dispute arose betwwen our client and the gas supplier regarding the pricing of gas received over a ten year period. The dispute resulted in an arbitration and our client required an expert to quantify their claim.
Under instruction from our client’s attorneys we investigated the pricing mechanism utilised by the gas supplier for the claim period and assessed whether it complied with the provisions of the regulatory framework during this period. We further quantified the extent to which the client had been overcharged for gas by calculating the correct price in respect of the GAs Supply Agreement and comparing to the actual price charged.
