After oilfield catastrophes, parties often disagree in their share of the liability. Our expertise in drilling projects around the globe qualifies our experts to explain responsibilities and culpability during field operations. We determine all factors contributing to operational errors, including Root Cause Analysis (RCA), and explain through concise reports, depositional testimony, and trial testimony (if needed).
- Our expert was deposed and testified at trial regarding regulatory changes in the wake of the Macondo blowout; our client was removed as defendant.
- We investigated a contract lawsuit where the operator spent tens of millions without performing objectives in the development plan and we testified at trial they had not performed according to operator standards outlined in the contract.
- We investigated a groundwater and soil contamination case at a sensitive oil and gas site and a defendant’s right to dump waste in a specified area.
