3. With reference to schedule 1 - 11.4/11.5 Can HSENI please provide
evidence of due diligence of the gas concession agreement with reference
to the above schedule full detailed reports from the concession holder?

 

Clarification required.

 

As HSENI’s previous contract with CGRAS holds no reference to ‘schedule 1
– 11.4 / 11.5, we are unable to answer this request.

Clarification required.

 

The contract between HSENI and CGRAS holds reference to a point ’20.2” as
set out below, however it makes no reference to Stake Holder Engagement:

 

20.2 lf the dispute remains unresolved between the parties after fourteen
(14) days after it has been referred to the directors of the parties
pursuant to Clause 18 .1 above, then:

 

20.2.1          If the parties so agree, the parties may proceed to
mediation provided by the Centre or Dispute Resolution (or such other body
as the parties may Agree or……….

 

We are therefore, unable to process this request.
