Aruba Petroleum Wins Appellate Ruling in Closely-Watched Nuisance Case

In Parr v. Aruba, a case that has been closely followed by the oil and gas community, a Texas court of appeals on February 1 reversed a $2.9 million judgment against Aruba Petroleum Inc., holding that the plaintiffs failed to establish that the company's natural gas operations constituted an intentional nuisance. The suit stemmed from drilling and production activity in the Barnett Shale in Texas. The plaintiffs, who owned land in the area, claimed Aruba's natural gas operations caused them various personal injuries, mental anguish, and property damages. The plaintiffs' lawyers claimed the suit was the first fracking trial in the nation, even though most of the evidence presented at trial did not concern hydraulic fracturing. At the April 2014 trial, the jury found that Aruba created an intentional nuisance and awarded the plaintiffs $2.9 million in damages. But the Fifth Court of Appeals in Dallas reversed and rendered a take-nothing judgment. The court concluded that the plaintiffs failed to establish a claim for intentional nuisance because there was 'no legally sufficient evidence that Aruba intentionally created or maintained a condition that substantially interfered with [plaintiffs] use and enjoyment of their land'.
