According to UK based newspaper Independent, in March 2008, John Messer, the lead in-house lawyer for US engineering group McDermott International, was still trying to get paid for a contract drawn up in the late 1980s to build a giant offshore platform for the Mumbai High oil field. In October 2006, Burn Standard, the Indian engineering company that sub-contracted work on the project to McDermott, lost its appeal against a court ruling instructing it to pay the US group $90m (£45m). The amount due has already been paid after finalization of the arbitration and initiative taken by the Government of India.
