Noble Energy Wins “Imprudent Operator” Case

On May 1, 2013 Judge Steve Gunnell at the 31st Judical District Court ruled in favor of Stone Pigman client Noble Energy, Inc. and several other defendants following a 24-day bench trial concerning plaintiffs' claims that two wells were imprudently drilled and operated, resulting in the wells’ premature demise and destruction of the reservoirs.  The Court concluded that plaintiffs fell short of meeting their burden on every element because they relied exclusively on one expert without offering any supporting evidence or authorities to back up their claims.  The Stone Pigman team was led by John Farnsworth and Brooke Tigchelaar.
