Fatal Accident at Devon Energy Oilfield
During fracking operations at a Devon Energy oilfield in Blaine County, ID, an explosion claimed the life of one worker and injured another. The incident occurred on November 28, 2017, just after crews started work at the site. The pressure reached 2,400 pounds and a pipe fitting gave out, striking a worker in the chest.
Debris struck another worker as well. Both workers were taken to a nearby hospital, but the worker who was struck in the chest died. The other worker was expected to make a full recovery.
This incident was referred to as a “freak accident” by a local news station, but every oilfield accident can be traced back to a specific cause. When these accidents occur as a result of negligence, overlooked safety standards, and defective equipment, we must expose this to help injured workers and their families see justice served.
