January 22, 2020 — An oilfield worker was critically injured in a pipeline accident in Wyoming, just two weeks after 3 workers were burned in a natural gas explosion.
The Casper Star-Tribune reported that the male worker was transferred to Wyoming Medical Center by helicopter. No update on his condition was provided.
Russ Dalgarn, coordinator of Converse County Emergency Management, described the incident as a “pipeline accident” that occurred just after 4 p.m. near Highway 93 on December 19, 2019, just outside Douglas, Wyoming.
Just a few weeks earlier, on December 5, 3 oil workers suffered severe burns when an oilfield compressor station exploded near Carpenter, Wyoming. One victim was airlifted to Western States Burn Center in Colorado. The fire chief was informed that the fire was likely sparked by a natural gas leak.
