9 Workers Trapped by Oil Rig Fire Near Port Arthur, TX
On February 24, 2022, the U.S. Coast Guard and Port Arthur firefighters responded to a reported fire at a shipyard in Sabine Pass. An oil rig that was being dismantled caught fire, with reports of explosions by a local news crew that was on the scene. 9 workers were trapped in the burning jack-up rig. A Coast Guard helicopter was able to airlift all 9 to safety, but the fire was just about 100 feet from them when they were rescued.
This incident shows how dangerous oil rigs can be, even when they're not in operation. This jack-up rig was being dismantled so its parts could be used for other purposes, and yet it still caught fire. The cause of this oil rig fire has yet to be determined, as authorities are investigating. However, in our experience as Port Arthur oil rig fire attorneys, "accidents" like this are nearly always caused by negligence or wrongdoing—usually on the part of big corporations that are more interested in turning a profit than protecting their workers.
