Expert Witness

PDQ provides expert witness services for process safety aspects of contractual disputes, accident investigation, design validation and due diligence. Typical assignments carried out in the last 5 years include:

LNG Plant

We were part of a multi-discipline team to provide process engineering and process safety expertise to investigate and provide opinion on alleged design shortcomings in the design of a LNG plant. The dispute related to gas venting, compression equipment, and safety deficiencies during commissioning. We wrote 5 expert witness reports and testified to the arbitration hearing at the International Centre For Dispute Resolution in New York.

Waste to Energy Plant

We advised the defendant’s lawyers on ATEX compliance matters and equipment design in relation to materials to be used in a waste to energy plant, and gave evidence to the High Court (Technology and Construction) in London.
