The contractor building US liquefaction giant Cheniere's Midship pipeline has filed a lawsuit blaming an Oklahoma landowner for damage to the area surrounding the project, echoing similar allegations filed by Cheniere earlier this summer.

In a complaint filed in Oklahoma federal court last month, contractor Strike Construction accused landowner Sandy Creek Farms of flooding its own fields around a portion of the project targeted for restoration.

The flooding prevented Strike from carrying out restoration work requested by the landowner and extended what should have been a four-to-five-week-long project to more than six months, according to the filing.
