The Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) on Monday ordered petrochemical giant Sasol to pay engineering company Murray & Roberts more than R19.7 million, bringing a four-year battle between the firms to an end.

According to the SCA judgment, the tussle between the two companies began in 2017, when Sasol asked Murray & Roberts to leave its plant in Secunda with immediate effect following budget constraints and time overruns. And because the engineering company was working on a time-charge contact, Sasol bore the risk of the overruns.

Sasol had contracted the firm to provide structural, mechanical, electrical instrumentation and piping work on the first phase of its Volatile Organic Compound Abatement Project. The contract was concluded in 2015.
