CIMIC Group had their priced bid based on initial scope of work and specifications from Chevron. After the commencement of work, Chevron (the company) has changed scope of work , specifications and requirements which i.e. Variation order or change order to the contractor (CIMIC) that will make the contractor change his cost evaluation. It is a straight forward EPC project procedure.Hence, CIMIC will win the case in court and another $1.42bn plus $ 500m of interest will add up to the overrun cost of this troubled project.
