“Directions will then be given for the parties to progress the action in an expeditious and fair manner e.g the filing of interlocutory applications and the timelines therein.
“An action may go through several PTCs. Parties who reach a settlement at a PTC may record the settlement before the Registrar. Otherwise, trial dates will be given for matters that cannot be settled.”
Brightoil’s legal representative, it an earlier session, highlighted parent company Brightoil Petroleum Holdings Limited working with the People's Bank of China to formulate a package for financing and debt optimisation adjustment plans.
