The Court of Appeal Rules in Favour of PetroSaudi International

The Court of Appeal has ruled in favour of PetroSaudi International ordering full payment of sums owing to them under a standby letter of credit. The judgment by the Court of Appeal overruled the High Court's previous decision that the signatory was fraudulent in their representation of law. In 2009, PetroSaudi entered into a drilling contract with Petroleos de Venezuela, S.A. In light of what the judgment describes as "Venezuela's dilatory payment history," an autonomous standby letter of credit was procured to provide security for payments from PDVSA. The commercial purpose of a standby letter of credit is to ensure the beneficiary - in this case, PetroSaudi - can obtain payment of sums due under a principal contract from a creditworthy bank, regardless of whether those sums are disputed or whether the counterparty is unable to pay. In countries with strong payment risk such as Venezuela, procurement of a letter of credit is standard business practice. PetroSaudi subsequently conducted drilling services for PDVSA totaling $129 million. The agreed credit period elapsed without payment of any of the invoices and the dispute over payment was then referred to arbitration.
