Capvesco Expects Claim Lodged by Al Rushaid Against Ensco Rowan Plc to Exceed £100 Million

LONDON, Aug. 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Al-Rushaid Trading Company (part of the Al-Rushaid Group) has issued a claim (CL-2019-000470) in the English High Court in London against Ensco Rowan PLC (NYSE: ESV) (now Valaris Plc) for breach of contract. International financial advisory firm, Capvesco International Group, expects the value of the claim to be in excess of £100 million.

Ensco Rowan PLC is a specialist off-shore oil and gas drilling company created in April this year following the merger of two established companies in the sector: Ensco PLC and Rowan Companies PLC.  It now trades on the New York Stock Exchange although its headquarters are in London, UK.

Al-Rushaid Trading Company is a specialist services and applied technology company based in Saudi Arabia. The Al-Rushaid Group has significant holdings in the UK including Amec, Cleveland Bridge Company, Compass UK, Foster Wheeler and Whessoe Oil & Gas.

The claim alleges that Ensco Rowan breached certain obligations in a joint venture agreement which Al-Rushaid Trading Company entered into with Ensco PLC's subsidiary prior to the merger. The joint venture agreement established a joint venture company called Ensco Arabia Limited, which was formed to create an off-shore drilling business in Saudi Arabian coastal waters, securing nine contracts since 2011.  

The claim will be heard in the English Commercial Court in London on a date to be determined. Al-Rushaid Trading Company is being represented by Byrne and Partners LLP.
