Three Workers Injured in Flash Fire at Shell Refinery

Fire Breaks Out in Refinery Accident

On the Fourth of July, three workers were injured in a refinery accident while working on hydrogen pipes at the Shell Refinery in Convent, Louisiana. Shell released a statement on Thursday about the incident. Two sources confirmed that the hydrogen pipe caught fire and necessitated medical treatment of at least 2 workers.

“Shell initiated its emergency response plan, which included immediately deploying personnel to respond to the incident,” said Shell spokesperson Ray Fisher.

The Convent refinery currently produces a little over 209,000 barrels-per-day of fuel. The hydrogen pipes were part of a sulfur unit and are only one part of a planned overhaul project, according to Reuters.

Our Shell accident lawyers hope that the cause of the fire is discovered and dealt with before any other workers are put at risk. We hope the injured workers recover quickly and completely.
