Pipeline Explosions & On-the-Job Injuries Involving Brazos Midstream

Brazos Midstream is one of the largest private natural gas and cured oil midstream companies in the Delaware Basin. In late 2014, it was founded by an executive team comprising of Brad Iles, William Butler, Stephen Lusky, and Ryan Jaggi. Brazos Midstream partnered with other corporations to pursue the acquisition and development of midstream infrastructure across the United States, focusing these acquisitions on crude, natural gas gathering, treating, and processing assets.

Headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas, Brazos Midstream has invested in over 750 miles of pipeline and $200 million to support ongoing operations. The current business recapitalized and sold to Morgan Stanley for $1.75 billion.

Worker Suffers Brain Injury at Brazos Facility in Mentone, TX

According to a report from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), an employee who was servicing a compressor at the Brazos Mainstream facility in Mentone, Texas, suffered a serious brain injury when a pipe struck him in the head. OSHA reports that he was not wearing a hardhat at the time of the accident, and he was hospitalized for “intracranial injuries.” This accident occurred on January 18, 2020.

The people who work for oil and gas companies like Brazos have the right to expect a reasonably safe workplace. While it’s true that oil and natural gas extraction, processing, and transportation are hazardous fields, this does not excuse accidents that leave workers injured, disabled, or lost forever. The above example is just one instance of an accident that changed a worker’s life. When these accidents are caused by negligence or wrongdoing, at-fault parties must be held accountable.

Causes of Plant, Oilfield & Refinery Accidents

Oil extraction injuries, well blowouts, and injuries at plants and refineries may happen when companies cut corners and place more importance on profits and production than the safety of their workers and the environment. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and other organizations try to regulate the oil and gas industry, but their resources and personnel are limited. Unsafe working conditions and environmental violations may go unnoticed until it’s too late.

The following are examples of negligence that can lead to oil and gas accidents:

  • Aging and outdated equipment
  • Rushed plant turnarounds
  • Delayed maintenance
  • Inadequate inspections
  • Equipment malfunction
  • Inadequate worker training
  • Ignoring safety standards
  • Improper safety equipment

Our Brazos Mainstream claim attorneys are here to help those who have been harmed or who have lost loved ones because of these kinds of negligence and wrongdoing. Even when we must face off against industry giants like Brazos, we stand up for what’s right. No matter the challenge. No matter what.
