Barnett Shale Accidents Endangering Texas Workers and Residents
Oil and natural gas companies are racing to profit from the resources contained in the Barnett Shale, and the pressure to do so can result in corporate negligence. Cutting corners to more quickly extract oil and gas only leads to endangering employees, and this is how life-threatening injuries are sustained.
For years, extracting natural gas from within the Barnett Shale was a difficult process. Since fracking has made extraction more manageable, this controversial method of oil mining has become commonplace.
Sadly, many accidents have occurred because of the extraction process, and the result has been record profits for the oil companies.
Residents, too, have suffered the side effects of drilling the Barnett Shale. Reports of accidents in regions that are routinely drilled are common, especially on sites where the mineral rights have been sold by the residents.
