According to an Associated Press article, Company: Workers followed procedures before blast, they has a survey map showing the pipelines and they called the Texas Railroad Commission. So what happened?
Fred Haag, chief operating officer of Oklahoma-based C&H Power Line Construction Services, said the crew already had a survey map showing gas lines in the area but also made calls to verify the line location at the site in rural Johnson County, about 50 miles southwest of Dallas.
Michael Williams of the Texas Railroad Commission, the state agency that regulates the oil and gas industry, said calls were made to locate the line, a requirement before any company or person does excavation work, but his agency is investigating what was said during those calls.
The man who was killed was thrown 600 feet. He and his wife have a new baby.
Something when terribly wrong.
