NEW ORLEANS – A Houston support firm for oil and gas exploration is suing Texas-based Northstar Offshore Group over a dispute involving a leased well in Plaquemines Parish.
Baker Hughes Oilfield Operations Inc. filed a lawsuit Jan. 22 in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana against Northstar Offshore Group LLC, alleging that Northstar owes it for services provided.
According to the complaint, between May 14, 2014, and June 7, Baker Hughes provided Northstar with equipment and supplies for drilling and operation of a lease in Plaquemines Parish totaling $79,297.88. In addition, Baker claims it provided and additional $3,000 in goods and services for another well in Cameron Parish. To date, both amounts remain outstanding, the suit says.
Baker Hughes is asking the court to seize the defendant’s property as collateral for the unpaid amount of $82,297.88, plus interest and attorneys’ fees. It is represented by attorneys Stewart F. Peck and Erin R. Rosenberg of Lugenbuhl, Wheaton, Peck, Rankin & Hubbard in New Orleans.
