ETP Cut Pipeline Pressure To Run Off Enterprise, Jury Told

April 7, 2015

Rusty Hardin, along with other lawyers from the firm, represents Enterprise Products Partners LP in its lawsuit against Energy Transfer Partners LP alleging ETP unnecessarily and purposefully lowered pressure to an oil and gas pipeline and cost Enterprise more than  $20 million to create a solution.

The other lawyers working with Mr. Hardin are  Carolyn Courville, Andy DrumhellerJeremy Monthy and Joe Roden. The opening statements were covered by Law360, a subscriber legal news service  here.

The intent was for Enterprise to be so unhappy with the contract that it would utilize an opt out clause in the contract, so ETP could exclusively operate the profitable pipeline along with a series of other north-to-south lines, said attorney Rusty Hardin of Rusty Hardin & Associates LLP.

“That’s what they counted on us doing,” Hardin told the jury. “Us abandoning this, and then they’ve got this themselves. And then they can ship, and then can start recognizing this future market, and they’ve got one more north-to-south line. And more important than that, they have a competitor that can’t get down there.”
