NEW ORLEANS – A Louisiana firm says Monforte Exploration and Texican Crude haven’t paid an outstanding debt of more than $50,000 for tanks and chemicals it supplied in connection with mineral exploration and production on the Outer Continental Shelf.

Gulf Coast Chemical filed a lawsuit Nov. 25 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District Court against Monforte Exploration and Texican Crude & Hydrocarbons, alleging violations of the Louisiana Oil Well Lien Act.

According to the complaint, the defendants own all or a majority of two mineral leases and several wells and related assets on the Outer Continental Shelf. Beginning in January 2014, the suit says Gulf Coast provided labor, tanks, specialty chemicals and other supplies at that site Monforte used in the production and transportation of hydrocarbons.

Gulf Coast seeks $51,405 in unpaid invoices, plus interest and all litigation costs and other incidental expenses. It is represented by Paul J. Hebert and William H.L. Kaufman of Lafayette, Louisiana.
