Niko Says Court Rules in Favour of Petitioner

As previously disclosed, Niko Resources Ltd. said that in May 2016, a writ petition was filed before the Supreme Court of Bangladesh, High Court Division in Dhaka by a citizen of Bangladesh (petitioner) against the Government of Bangladesh (GOB); Bangladesh Oil, Gas and Mineral Corporation (Petrobangla); Bangladesh Petroleum Exploration & Production Company Limited (Bape); Niko Resources (Bangladesh) Ltd. (NRBL); and Niko. The writ petition relates to the Feni Gas Purchase and Sales Agreement between Petrobangla and NRBL for the Feni gas field and the Joint Venture Agreement between Bapex and NRBL for the Feni and Chattak fields in Bangladesh, which agreements are currently the subject of previously disclosed arbitration disputes to be decided upon by a tribunal panel constituted under the rules of the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID). In the court, the presiding judge announced its decision in favour of the petitioner and declared: the Feni GSPA and the JVA to be without legal authority and of no legal effect; and the assets of NRBL and Niko, including its shareholding in the indirect subsidiary that holds a 60% interest in the Block 9 production sharing contract (Block 9 PSC), are seized to provide adequate compensation for the blowouts that occurred in 2005 in the Chattak field in Bangladesh. An application has been filed to receive the full written judgement of the court. Niko believes that ICSID has exclusive jurisdiction to decide all disputes relating to the Feni GPSA and the JVA and the Block 9 PSC provides for ICSID arbitration as the default dispute resolution mechanism to decide disputes relating to the Block 9 PSC. Niko will vigorously pursue its rights in this matter.
