An Australian construction firm is taking Chevron and KBR to court in a dispute over the Gorgon LNG project, a news report said today.

Cimic Group said it was owed $1.42billion for building a jetty at the site in western Australia, Reuters reported.

Cimic and its clients disagreed over changes to the work, leading the construction company to issue a notice of dispute earlier this year.

“Negotiations under the contract continue,” Cimic said in a statement.

“The commencement of the proceedings has no effect on the negotiation process or Cimic Group’s entitlement to the amounts under negotiation.”
