It’s critical for oil and gas corporations operating in the Permian Basin (which includes Midland Basin, Val Verde Basin, Delaware Basin and Kerr Basin) and other oil and natural gas deposits in Texas to take precautions to prevent pipeline explosions.
Many large oil and gas corporations work in the Permian Basin. Some of the largest ones include:
- Occidental Petroleum
- Exxon Mobil
- Concho Resources
- Kinder Morgan
- Navitas Midstream Partners
- Pioneer Natural Resources
Unfortunately, some companies cut corners and put profits ahead of safety. If you’ve been injured in a work accident, it’s critical that you have an experienced attorney on your side, protecting your rights. Our lawyers know the area and know what needs to be done to protect the rights of injured oil and gas workers in Midland County and throughout Texas.

What are common pipeline explosion injuries?
When oil or gas pipelines explode, injuries sustained by roustabouts, roughnecks and other oil and gas field workers can be severe or fatal. Some of the most common – and most serious – injuries sustained by people working on oil and gas pipelines include:
- Severe burn injuries
- Broken bones
- Blindness/loss of sight
- Deafness/ loss of hearing
- Spinal cord injuries
- Neck injuries
- Head injuries
These injuries can have life-changing consequences. In an instant, you or a loved one might not be able to work for weeks, months or maybe ever again. Many of these injuries require immediate medical care and surgical procedures. You might also need physical therapy. During your recovery period, you need time to rest and recuperate.
All of the expenses and bills associated with your treatment and recovery time can quickly add up to a large amount. That’s why it’s important to have a lawyer on your side who understands how the legal system works in Texas and can demand the compensation you deserve.
