Breach of Natural Gas Processing Contract – Commercial Litigation in Harris County, TX
In Plains Gas Solutions, LLC v. Columbia Gulf Transmission Company, Brattle was engaged as testifying experts for the defendant to evaluate breach of contract claims arising from a natural gas processing contract. We analyzed the impact that significant new shale gas production from the Marcellus Basin had on regional natural gas prices, natural gas pipeline operations, and changing regional natural gas flows. Brattle experts also developed a detailed economic model of natural gas processing in order to value any potential lost profits or reliance damages associated with the natural gas stream delivered under the contract. We also rebutted certain valuation assumptions and techniques put forward by plaintiff’s experts.
