Crestwood Midstream Partners LP

Helping Those Injured in Oil & Gas Accidents Across the U.S.

Crestwood Midstream Partners Accident Attorneys

Pipeline Explosions, Plant & Refinery Accidents & Transportation Injuries

Crestwood Midstream Partners LP was established when Crestwood Holdings and First Reserve partnered to pursue investments in midstream assets. In the oil and gas industry, the midstream sector involves the transportation, storage, and marketing of petroleum products. Crestwood Midstream Partners operates primarily in the Bakken Shale, Delaware Basin, Powder River Basin, Marcellus Shale, and Barnett Shale.

Crestwood Midstream Partners is essentially engaged in:

  • Gathering, processing, treating, compressing, storing, and transporting natural gas.
  • Gathering, storing, transporting, terminaling, and marketing crude oil.
  • Gathering and disposing of produced water that comes from oil and gas extraction.

These processes are complex and potentially dangerous. It takes skilled workers, strict safety policies, and properly maintained equipment to avoid accidents that cause serious injuries or claim lives. When negligence, carelessness, and even intentional misconduct cause oil and gas accidents, Arnold & Itkin stands up for workers and families, helping them get answers and see justice served. We have recovered more than $10 billion for the injured and wronged, helping them create stable futures for themselves and their families.

Gas Storage Accidents

Because demand for natural gas may fluctuate, it is stored underground, in aboveground tanks, in salt caverns, and in aquifers that have been converted to natural gas storage reservoirs. Generally, smaller quantities of natural gas are stored in aboveground tanks while underground reservoirs will hold larger quantities.

Natural gas is flammable and must be stored in optimum conditions to avoid situations that can lead to leaks, fires, and explosions. Workers at storage facilities and those responsible for inspecting, maintaining, filling, and repairing natural gas storage tanks and reservoirs could be at risk of injury if companies like Crestwood Midstream Partners do not uphold their obligation to observe workplace safety standards.

Natural gas storage accidents may occur as a result of:

  • Aging and outdated equipment
  • Well casing or cement leaks
  • Failures to inspect machinery or equipment
  • Unskilled or inexperienced workers
  • Inadequate or faulty safety gear
  • Unsafe storage conditions

Workers aren’t the only people at risk. According to a study published in the Journal of Environmental Health, about 20,000 homes and 53,000 people live within a city block of active underground natural gas storage wells in suburban areas of Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Michigan, New York, and California. Because the study only included those six states, it is reasonable to believe that tens of thousands of other homes are located close to natural gas storage wells in other states across the country.

Gas Transportation Accidents & Pipeline Explosions

Accidents can also occur during the transportation of natural gas and oil, whether by truck, rail, or pipeline. Our firm investigates cases involving gas truck accidents, pipeline explosions, gas leaks, and railway accidents involving all types of crude oil and natural gas products. If you were harmed or lost someone you love in an incident involving gas or oil being transported by Crestwood or one of its subsidiaries, you can turn to our team for insight into your legal rights and options.

Crestwood owns and operates pipeline systems in multiple states, including:

  • Arrow System in North Dakota
  • Alliance, Lake Arlington, and Cowtown Systems in Texas
  • Greenbrier Rich Gas System in West Virginia
  • Jackalope Dedication System in Wyoming
  • Willow Lake and Nautilus Systems in Texas and New Mexico

Accidents at Crestwood Midstream Partners Plants & Refineries

Finally, there is the risk of harm at a Crestwood plant, refinery, or terminal, such as:

  • Bear Den Processing Plant
  • COLT Hub
  • Dry Forks Terminal
  • Bucking Horse Gas Processing Plant
  • Douglas Rail Facility
  • Orla Processing Plant

When plant and refinery workers are injured, they often find that their employers are more interested in protecting the company’s bottom line than helping them get the treatment and financial support they need. Our Crestwood Midstream accident lawyers believe in leveling the playing field between workers and their employers, which are often multi-billion dollar corporations with more than enough resources to bury claims and underpay injured employees. Our attorneys are known nationwide for holding oil and gas companies accountable when they ignore safety standards and put workers at risk.
