Fuel-technology firm claims patent infringement

Fuel-analytics software and field-technologies company Leighton O’Brien has filed a lawsuit against Tanknology Australia for infringing on its patent relating to its fuel-cleaning technology.

Leighton O¹Brien is seeking financial compensation and a permanent injunction forcing Tanknology Australia immediately to cease using its fuel-cleaning technology.

Leighton O’Brien CEO Reed Leighton says the filing follows unsuccessful attempts to resolve its concerns directly with Tanknology.

“We believe our intellectual-property rights are being exploited and we wish to protect them,” he said.

“Our intellectual property is our core asset and represents significant R&D investment. We welcome healthy competition, but we will not tolerate competitors copying our technology.

“It’s necessary for our business to take this action to protect our investment that our licensed service partners and customers rely on for industry-leading tank cleaning and fuel restoration.”
