CLARKSBURG - A company is seeking damages after a construction company allegedly breached a contract by performing poor work.
Antero Resources Corp., formerly known as Antero Resources Appalachian Corp., filed a lawsuit Nov. 7 in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of West Virginia at Clarksburg against Performance Pipeline LLC.
According to the complaint, on April 4, Antero entered into a contract with Performance Pipeline to perform construction work along Antero's pipeline right of way.
