Chevron Accident Lawyers

Advocating for Workers Injured in Chevron Refinery & Oil Rig Accidents

Since 1879, Pacific Coast Oil Co., now known as Chevron, has been searching for oil. Today, Chevron is a massive multinational corporation that has expanded to more than 180 countries and continues to lead the oil and energy industry. As the second largest energy company in the United States, Chevron specializes in production, manufacturing, marketing, transportation, chemicals manufacturing and sales, geothermal energy, and oil and gas drilling. Since 2000, Chevron has been fined $577 million for violations and penalties. Many workers have suffered serious injuries or a wrongful death due to their negligence. It has to stop.

Oil and gas workers have one of the most dangerous jobs in the nation because they routinely work with high-risk equipment in remote locations. As a result, oil and gas workers need specialized training to do their work safely. It is Chevron’s responsibility to create a safe work environment across all its job sites. The Chevron accident attorneys at Arnold & Itkin hold Chevron accountable when their negligence results in someone’s grievous injury.

Chevron's History of Accidents

Chevron has been involved with numerous drilling rig accidents, including:

  • Gulf of Mexico Oil Rig Accident (2015)
    On October 20, 2015, a crew member on a Gulf of Mexico oil rig was killed in an accident while the Pacific Santa Ana rig was operating off Louisiana waters. The crew member died when he was struck by a 6-inch drill pipe. The pipe was being moved from its storage location to the main drill center. According to the , the accident was caused due to the lack of training and employer supervision.
  • Pascagoula Refinery Explosion (2013)
    On November 15, 2013, an explosion occurred at the Chevron refinery in Pascagoula, Mississippi. One worker was killed and another one was injured when a detonation occurred in the Cracking II Processing Unit of the refinery, which caused the fire.
  • K.S. Endeavor Explosion (2012)
    On January 16, 2012, K.S. Endeavor, run by Chevron Nigeria Ltd. caught fire. As a result, 2 workers were killed in the explosion. The jack-up rig used to seek out deep water oil and gas stores was not connected to any oil production at the time of the fire. Multiple testimonies from K.S. Endeavor workers claim Chevron knew the oil rig was smoking and was in danger of exploding but failed to take action.

Chevron Drilling Rig Accidents

Rig workers have a high-risk profession. Safety regulations were put in place to protect rig workers and mitigate the risks of the job. Unfortunately, workers still get hurt because employers fail to provide safe workplaces, proper training, or well-maintained equipment. The nature of the job means many of these injuries are catastrophic, or life-changing. Catastrophic injuries usually require long-term care and assistance.

Common life-altering injuries caused by rig accidents include:
