Gardere Wynne Sewell LLP successfully represented Matrix Petroleum Holdings LLC in a breach of contract suit against Talisman Energy USA Inc. A Texas appeals court decided against lifting an injunction that barred Talisman from proposing to drill mutually owned oil and gas wells on an Eagle Ford shale ranch.
The Fourth Court of Appeals ruled that Talisman’s actions threatened injury to real property. While Matrix is a minority stakeholder of the mineral leases, the companies had agreed to jointly develop interests. The Gardere team was led by partners Alexander C. Chae and Mike Seely.
