Worker Injured in Oilfield Explosion

Posted By Arnold & Itkin || 17-Feb-2017

Yesterday afternoon, an oilfield explosion occurred less than 4 miles west of Quinton, OK (about 2 hours east of Oklahoma City). The well, which is owned by Trinity Operating, exploded when a worker was opening the valve on the well head. He suffered burns to the lower half of his body and was airlifted by helicopter to a hospital in Tulsa. His condition is currently unknown.

The resulting explosion also caused the shutdown of Highway 31 for a few hours while investigators ensured there wasn’t further danger of explosion. At the time of this writing, three of the well heads are still burning—operators are currently working on putting those out. However, emergency management officials have ensured that the fires are contained. They said there is no risk of further explosions.

Trinity Operating released a statement mentioning that they would investigate the issue to find the cause of the explosion—hopefully to prevent further injuries.
