Bumi Armada said the Supreme Court in Western Australia is expected to make a judgement next month on its dispute with Woodside Petroleum over a terminated FPSO contract.

In March 2016, Woodside issued a notice of termination to Bumi for the FPSO working on the Balnaves oilfield off Western Australia.

The Armada Claire FPSO had been on contract since August 2014 under a four-year fixed charter with extension options.

The Malaysian contractor, which is seeking damages of US$275 million, said in its latest quarterly results the trial began at the Supreme Court on 18 February 2019 and the parties had served written closing submissions and made closing oral submissions on 26 and 27 March 2019.
