Cy-Fair company sues Woodlands-area business owners over oilfield equipment
A Cy-Fair company is suing The Woodlands business owners after, it says, they failed to pay for leased oilfield equipment.
Allis-Chalmers Rental Services and Allis-Chalmers Energy Inc. of Cy-Fair filed a lawsuit on April 1 in the Harris County District Court against Gagie Corp. Panama and Tom Doig and George Nicoll of The Woodlands, alleging breach of contract, tortious interference, fraud, negligent misrepresentation and conversion.
The plaintiffs say that in November 2009, they leased oilfield-related equipment, including drill pipes and other tools, to Gagie for a project with EcoPetrol. According to the brief, the plaintiffs have not been paid in full for the oilfield equipment, and the equipment has not been returned.
The plaintiffs are seeking actual damages in the amount of $1,650,000, exemplary and punitive damages, attorney’s fees and court costs. They are being represented in the case by Houston attorney Charles Kelly.
