Gazprom contractor's bankruptcy case to be heard on December 16
MOSCOW, November 22 - RAPSI, Sergei Feklyunin. The court will hear on December 16 a bankruptcy application filed against Stroygazconsulting, a head company of Russia's major construction and engineering holding, the court told the Russian Leading Information Agency (RAPSI) on Tuesday.
Stroygazconsulting's companies are engaged in the construction and overhauling of oil and gas field surface facilities, main pipelines and roads. Its major customers are Gazprom, Transneft, LUKOIL, Nord Stream AG and the Federal Highway Agency of the Ministry of Transport.
The Moscow Commercial Court received the bankruptcy petition on October 26.
The Moscow District Federal Commercial Court upheld on November 21 lower-court judgments ordering Stroygazconsulting to pay Tarkus 7.82 million rubles ($261,700) for gas pipeline coating and pipe replacement. Tarkus later filed a bankruptcy application against Stroygazconsulting after it failed to pay the debt.
Stroygazconsulting declined comment, noting that the company will wait for the court's ruling.
RAPSI has also yet to reach Tarkus for comments.
