Invitation to Tender and Fracture Stimulation Contract

We provided English law advice and assistance to our upstream client in in connection with the preparing of a full suite of invitation to tender (ITT) documents including a master contract for services relating to fracture stimulation (“fracking”) to be undertaken in Germany. The ITT documents including a number of challenging issues, not least the impact of environmentally led regulatory issues relating to fracking and the consequent impact on timing and thus pricing. We drafted the ITT documentation in a short timescale and liaised with client’s in-house counsel as well as local German counsel to ensure that the ITT met the strict time requirements of the client. We were instructed as the contract is subject to English law (as is common in the industry when operating in Europe) due to the particular “knock for knock” indemnity provisions which are prevalent in the industry and on which we are experts.
