EOG Resources Accidents

When Oil & Gas Workers Are INjured, They Turn to Arnold & Itkin

EOG Resources Accident Lawyers

Building Better Futures for Injured EOG Resources Workers

One of the largest crude oil and natural gas exploration and production companies in the U.S., EOG Resources has drilling operations in the United States, Canada, Trinidad and Tobago, the United Kingdom, and China. The company is headquartered in Houston, Texas, with additional offices in Denver, Oklahoma City, Artesia, Midland, Fort Worth, Corpus Christi, and San Antonio. EOG Resources has almost 3,000 employees. In 2020, its total worldwide production was 270 million barrels of oil equivalent.

Unfortunately, EOG Resources has seen its fair share of accidents. A 2019 explosion outside of Carter, Wyoming left 3 contractors who were working at the well site seriously injured. In 2018, a worker at an EOG Resources containment tank slipped and fell, suffering severe injuries, and a natural gas well in Gonzales County, Texas blew out, thankfully without injuring any of the workers on site.

When explosions, fires, and other oil and gas accidents happen, it is often workers who pay the price – with their health and sometimes their very lives. At Arnold & Itkin, we believe in helping injured workers and their families get the treatment and financial support they need. Our EOG Resources injury attorneys know how to handle personal injury and wrongful death cases against large corporations and their insurance companies, standing up for workers’ rights so they can rebuild their lives.

EOG Resources Sued by 3 Injured Workers

In August 2020, 3 workers filed suit against EOG Resources in connection with a December 5, 2019 incident that left them seriously injured. The three workers were employed by Archrock Services at the time and were contracted to maintain a natural gas compressor at an EOG Resources well in Wyoming. Two went inside to check the compressor, which was malfunctioning. The third stood outside the building. Suddenly, the pipe that fed natural gas to the compressor began to leak. It ignited, sending a flash fire through the building.

The three workers suffered severe burns and other injuries. Their lawsuit seeks to prove that EOG Resources was negligent and failed to warn the workers of the hazard.
