Mommas don’t let your babies grow up to be roughnecks. The jobs are the most dangerous in the world and workers suffer horrific accidents and deaths. Somewhere a family is suffering. I hope this mother’s baby will be alright.
Many of the jobs the industry provides are taxpayer funded. They keep our first responders busy.

My thoughts go out to him, and his loved ones.
Re: lightening … I used to love thunderstorms, and the sound of rain. Now I live in fear of them. Absolute terror, anxiety off the charts.
Lightening does love to strike oil & gas facilities.
Another well accident in the news today:
Two workers hurt in Antero gas well fire in WV
WEST UNION, W.Va. — Two workers were hurt Sunday morning in a fire at an Antero Resources natural gas well in Doddridge County, officials said.
One worker was treated and released from a Clarksburg hospital. The other remained hospitalized in Pittsburgh, being treated for burns on the air and ear, said Antero spokesman Al Schopp. Both workers are Antero employes.
Schopp said that the workers were installing a new sand separator at a well pad on Ramseys Ridge Road near West Union when an oil condensate in the separator caught fire.
In July, two workers died in an explosion at a different Antero drilling site in Doddridge County.
Prayers for the worker. Hopefully, OSHA will be called in to see what the conditions were that led to this horrible accident.

Tragic. The extraction of shale gas cannot be done safely.
The Oil and Gas Industry is not happy about the $800,000 fee the City of Arlington decided to charge them. They seem to think that “safety is their top priority.” However, when emergency response is called out so frequently due to incidents, someone must pay the price.
oilfield worker says
Well as I see it its not a fee its a tax they pay the fee when the FD gets called out. So ya I would be P O too
They should be taxed on their use of our first responders.
