Helping Victims of Catastrophic Accidents at LyondellBasell Refineries

LyondellBasell is one of the largest plastic, chemical, & refining companies in the world. With over 13,000 employees and 55 manufacturing sites in 17 countries, LyondellBasell is one of the leading oil companies in the industry. Since its establishment in 1953, LyondellBasell has become the largest global licensor of polyolefin technologies.

LyondellBasell also operates one of the largest refineries in the United States. This refinery is located in Houston Ship Channel and refines heavy, high-sulfur crude oil at a capacity of about 268,000 barrels-per-day. The facility produces gasoline and fuel components, low-sulfur diesel, jet fuel and lubricants. Refinery and plant workers have one of the most dangerous jobs because handling these gasoline and fuel components can be risky if the proper equipment and safety procedures aren’t employed.

Common causes of industrial plant & refinery accidents include:

  • Malfunctioning equipment
  • Poor training or refinery employees
  • Unseen corrosion
  • Dirty & Impure chemicals
  • Poor facility maintenance & unsafe working conditions
  • Failure to follow OSHA Guidelines

Time and time again, our attorneys at Arnold & Itkin have represented plant and refinery workers that that were severely injured due to the lack of safety equipment or training.

2008 LyondellBasell Crane Accident

In 2008, 7 workers were severely injured while 4 others were killed when a crane collapsed on them at a LyondellBasell plant in Pasadena, TX. According to the United States Department of Labor, 30-story- tall crane—capable of lifting 1-million pounds—fell over at the company’s refinery in southeast Houston. LyondellBasell was in the initial stages of a large turnaround in their Coking Unit. Deep South Crane & Rigging Company was retained by LyondellBasell to bring one of world’s largest mobile cranes to the site to remove the derricks from the top structure and then the coking drums. This incident, involving multiple parties, shows how vital it is to have well-maintained equipment.
