A Houston corporation has filed suit against a Port Arthur company it claims failed to pay more than $40,000 for services it rendered.

Enerflex Energy Systems, formerly known as Toromont Energy Systems, claims it entered into a contract with defendant Port Arthur Towing Co. for work on a compressor.

According to the complaint filed Aug. 23 in Jefferson County District Court, Enerflex agreed to retrofit an existing York G163CG ammonia reciprocating compressor with a new Viter two stage ammonia compressor for $69,909.

Although Port Arthur Towing has partially paid for Enerflex's services, it still owes the company $44,904, according to the complaint.

In its complaint, Enerflex alleges breach of contract against Port Arthur Towing.

Because Port Arthur Towing has not made a full payment to Enerflex, Enerflex also has a lien on Port Arthur Towing's property, the suit states. In its suit, Enerflex is seeking to foreclose on the lien.

In addition to the money it says it is due and the foreclosure, Enerflex is seeking a writ of sequestration, pre- and post-judgment interest, attorney's fees, costs and other relief the court deems just.

W. Jason Walker of Andrews, Myers, Coulter and Hayes in Houston will be representing it.

The case has been assigned to Judge Milton Shuffield, 136th District Court.

Jefferson County District Court case number: D187-752.
