TTPC Wins Dismissal of Interim Measures Request Against One of World’s Largest Energy Companies

May 15, 2007

Cleary Gottlieb won dismissal of an interim relief measures request by Gas Intensive S.p.A. against ENI subsidiary Trans Tunisian Pipeline Company Ltd. before the Milan Court of Appeal on May 15, 2007. Gas Intensive, a consortium of Italian industrial manufacturers, had requested interim relief measures for its exclusion by TTPC from its procedure of allocating natural gas transport capacity on its international gas pipeline. Gas Intensive alleged that the exclusion was an “abuse of a dominant position” by TTPC.

The Court agreed with Cleary Gottlieb that it lacked jurisdiction in rejecting the interim measure request.
