NEW MARTINSVILLE — A West Virginia pipeline company is suing natural gas companies, alleging they owe more than $4.8 million for breach of a master service agreement and unjust enrichment.
Ace Pipeline Inc. filed a complaint March 8 in Wetzel Circuit Court against EQT Corporation, Equitrans LP and EQT Gathering LLC, alleging they failed to perform their contractual obligations.
According to the complaint, on July 13, 2015, the defendants issued purchase orders to Ace Pipeline for the construction of a portion of the Ohio Valley Connector for transmission of natural gas. To date, the suit says, the defendants owe $4,801,316.15 for reparation work, retainage, unpaid time and material, and the use of hydromulch.
The plaintiff alleges the defendants have failed and refuses to tender payments for all sums properly due and owing under the contract.
Ace Pipeline seeks trial by jury, judgment of $4,801,316.15, plus interest, attorney fees, court costs and all other relief the court deems just and proper. It is represented by attorney Norm Daniels of Daniels Law Firm PLLC in Charleston.
