Claim for the elimination of the measures of constraint in favor of Consorcio Redes Barrancabermeja 2020

Involved in the request for the elimination of the fines imposed by Ecopetrol to Consorcio Redes Barrancabermeja 2020, regarding the contract entered into between the parties for the restoration of the viaducts of the Barrancabermeja refinery.

This matter is particularly complex, as it is debated whether it is legally feasible for Ecopetrol to revoke these fines considering that it is a contract framed in an exempted regime of the General Statute of Contracting of the Public Administration.
