Oilfield Accidents in West Texas
There are more than 140,000 oil wells in West Texas, according to the Railroad Commission of Texas (RRC). For perspective: West Texas only covers 14% of Texas in terms of square mileage, yet it contains roughly 46% of the state’s oil wells.
Many oil and gas companies operate in West Texas and the rest of the Permian Basin. As of May 2023, there are more than 300 oil rigs operating in West Texas. 32 companies own these rigs, including Helmerich & Payne, Patterson-UTI Drilling Company, and Ensign Energy Services.
Any number of these companies may be responsible for an accident on their premises. As the industry grows and well-known oil companies invest in West Texas and the Permian Basin, safety and health concerns will climb. There are more wells, more workers, and more work to be done. Workers need proper training, supervision, and well-maintained equipment. Without these resources, accidents will continue to occur.
Transportation accidents are also of great concern to workers and locals. Large commercial trucks are constantly moving between oilfields and refineries, significantly increasing traffic. More traffic means there’s a greater chance of serious and deadly truck accidents.
If you get injured in an oilfield accident, it can be difficult to know who is accountable for your damages. There are often multiple companies at any given site, and more than one of them could have a role in causing your injuries. Kemmy Law Firm is equipped to find the parties responsible and hold them accountable to the fullest extent of the law.
