COG Operating Accident History

COG Operating, like most oil and gas companies, does not have a completely clean past in terms of accidents, injuries, and alleged safety violations.

2 COG Oilfield Workers Electrocuted During Maintenance Operation

In 2020, two oilfield workers were electrocuted while performing maintenance work at a tank battery site near Carlsbad, New Mexico. The families of both victims filed a lawsuit alleging that COG was responsible for the deaths by negligently placing the powerline near the worksite and providing no signage to warn workers. COG was able to prove the oilfield workers improperly operated the forklift used to make the repairs. As a result of the deaths, COG facilitated safety inspections and fixed the equipment that ultimately led to the workers’ deaths.

Air Grinder Injury

In 2021, a worker was injured while cutting bolts with an air grinder at a COG-operated site in Carlsbad, New Mexico. The worker filed suit against COG Operating, Conoco Resources, and Rudtruck Operating, claiming negligence led to his injuries. The worker suffered pain, disfigurement, lost earnings, and impairment as a result of his injuries. His lawsuit alleged that the defendants were to blame for not providing a safe work environment, reasonably competent site supervision, and proper equipment.

Filing a Lawsuit for a COG Operating Accident

When oilfield workers are injured, they may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits, or they may have grounds for personal injury lawsuits against any parties that caused them harm. Families of oil and gas workers who have been killed on the job may be able to file wrongful death suits. Taking legal action offers accident survivors and families the opportunity to recover and rebuild, which can seem difficult or impossible in the aftermath of a catastrophic injury or the loss of a loved one.

An oilfield accident case may include the pursuit of compensation for:

  • Medical treatment
  • Ongoing care and therapy
  • Emotional trauma
  • Pain and suffering
  • Disfigurement
  • Scarring
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of future earnings
