Helping Those Injured in Murphy Oil Accidents Nationwide Rebuild Their Lives

For over 80 years, Murphy Oil Corporation has become an international independent company in the crude oil and natural gas industry. This company owns and operates oil and natural gas wells in North America, the North Sea, Ecuador, Malaysia, and the Congo. Murphy Oil also operates a retail marketing gasoline station chain on the parking lots of Wal-Mart Supercenters and at standalone locations throughout the US. Domestically, Murphy produces oil and natural gas from four operating fields and four non-operating fields. The US-producing fields include seven in the Gulf of Mexico and one in the Eagle Ford Shale in South Texas. Multiple job sites also means multiple hazards to mitigate.

It is vital for companies like Murphy Oil Corporation not only to reduce worksite hazards but to follow safety procedures and regulations to prevent employees from suffering injuries. Oil and gas workers have one of the most dangerous professions in the nation—it is vital for employers to provide proper safety training and equipment to prevent accidents from occurring. When they fail, the Murphy Oil Corporation accident lawyers at Arnold & Itkin will hold them accountable to the workers they harm. Our firm has helped workers recover billions of dollars to recoup their medical costs, replace their lost wages, and provide for their families.

Murphy Oil Corporation Accidents

Unfortunately, Murphy Oil Corp has been the site of multiple preventable accidents. Since 2000, Murphy has incurred $154,462,818 in fines due to environmental, workplace safety, offshore drilling and railroad safety violations. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA), employers are responsible for providing safe and healthful workplaces for their employees. Injuries and fatalities from incidents at refineries are preventable if companies take corrective action to ensure a safe work environment.

Murphy Safety & Health Violations (2009)

In 2009, Murphy Oil was cited for serious health and safety issues at their Baton Rouge facility. OSHA’s investigation revealed 18 serious violations in the Murphy refinery. Murphy failed to provide an adequate relief system designed to prevent fires and explosions for the Hydro Cracker unit. Murphy also failed to ensure that equipment in the refining process was being used with good engineering practices and to conduct regularly scheduled piping inspections. OSHA considered these violations serious because they could result in injuries or death.

Common Injuries Caused by Rig Accidents

It is the employer’s duty to ensure that work environments are safe and workers have the proper equipment to protect themselves. Unfortunately, employers cut corners on safety to save costs or improve ‘efficiency’—putting employees’ lives in danger.

Rig and refinery accidents often cause life-changing, catastrophic injuries:
