This time, it happened in Durango, Colorado. An employee was pressurizing something when it exploded, killing 1 contract worker, and injuring 2 other contract workers.

These compressors can be very dangerous. They emit all kinds of toxins (depending on the nature of the fuel gas, usually somekind of raw untreated natural gas), including SO2, CO2, formaldahyde, other NOX’s, SOX’s and VOX’s. Usually they smell like a west Texas truck stop. And then there is is noise levels, including the very dangerous LFN. There are a lot of them in Booger county.
