Discovery is still ongoing in Performance Pressure Pumping Services’ suit against NRG Manufacturing, who allegedly did not deliver frac pumps by the promised date.
As previously reported, the suit was filed June 18, 2012, in Jefferson County District Court.
Court records show on Feb. 25 the plaintiff served the defendant with its first set of interrogatories and request for production.
The lawsuit alleges that Performance, an oilfield contractor, provides frac pumps to drilling companies. The company entered into a verbal agreement with NRG in early 2011 that called for NRG to manufacture new frac pumps for Performance by June 15, 2011.
However, NRG was 45 days late in delivering the pumps, resulting in loss opportunity for Performance.
Performance is suing for the loss of profit it allegedly suffered and attorney’s fees.
Beaumont attorney Anthony Malley III of Moore Landrey represents it.
The case is assigned to Judge Milton Shuffield, 136th District Court.
Case No. D192-588
