Jul 25, 2013, 11:04 ET from Peregrine Petroleum LLC

DALLAS and HOUSTON, July 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Peregrine Petroleum LLC, a leading oil and gas exploration company with offices in Dallas and Houston, has resolved a lawsuit filed by San Antonio-based TXCO Resources Inc.

TXCO emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy in February 2010 after selling a majority of its assets to Houston-based Newfield Exploration Co. and The Woodlands, Texas-based Andarko Petroleum Co. During the bankruptcy proceedings, TXCO filed a trade secret lawsuit against Peregrine.

The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Texas initially ruled in favor of TXCO, but later vacated the ruling and dismissed all claims against Peregrine. The same court also returned a $16.5 million cash deposit to Peregrine that was ordered in the court's earlier, now-vacated ruling.

Peregrine and TXCO have amicably resolved all differences between the companies.
