Nigeria Given Go Ahead to Challenge $9.6 Billion Gas Project Row

The Commercial Court of England has granted Nigeria more time to  appeal against the arbitration award and to investigate further what it alleges is fraud by Process & Industrial Developments (P&ID) and past government officials. The contract fell through and the firm took the government to a UK court, suing them for U.S.$9 billion - a case that they won and the Nigerian government were ordered to pay U.S.$6 billion.
