Damages Claim for Increased Gas Supply Cost
In a Louisiana State Court matter, Brattle worked as experts for defendant Texas Brine Company to examine and testify to the effects a sinkhole and subsequent pipeline outages had on the natural gas purchase decisions of certain Louisiana pipeline companies. Brattle evaluated the natural gas trades and contracts before, during, and after the pipeline outages to evaluate changes in supply sources, purchase costs, sales volumes, and sale prices. We provided analysis and testimony rebutting plaintiffs’ claims of increased natural gas supply costs. Following Brattle’s rebuttal testimony and prior to trial, plaintiff waived their damage claim related to alleged increased gas supply costs.
