Oil field accidents are on the rise as drilling expands in the Haynesville Shale, Eagle Ford Shale and across Texas oil fields and oil and gas fields in Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma and Mississippi. Pressurized wells, combustible compounds, flammable liquids and human error can combine to cause oil field explosions and drilling rig fires. The consequences of these work place accidents can be devastating.
