CBM Drilling Expert in Mining Operations

Case Description:

A coal bed methane (CBM) drilling expert was requested for a breach of contract alleging breach of fiduciary responsibility and tortuous interference. All parties are in the business of extracting methane gas from seams of coal through a drilling, dewatering, fracturing and extraction process. The defendants contracted with the plaintiffs to assemble a drilling equipment package for a methane extraction project. Plaintiff alleged the defendant enticed its employees to form their own mining operations company and move forward with the project independently.
