Employee of Nabors Industries Dies After Injury

Mar 17, 2016

FuneralOff the Gulf of Mexico last week, an employee of Nabors Industries was working on another company’s oil and gas platform after suffering an injury. The employee was working on a rig for Whistler Energy II, a Houston-based company working on a Gulf drilling project. The executive vice president and CEO of the company declined to go into many details of the accident, but did state that there was no explosion.

The Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement is investigating the matter, but there were no reports of other injuries. Furthermore, there was no evidence of an explosion, pollution, or fire.

The drilling project was temporarily halted, but the gas and oil production was not suspended because it was on a separate deck than the accident.

Any kind of on-the-job injury is difficult to endure, but when it results in a fatality, it can be devastating. These are difficult situations because the worker was contracted from Nabors Industries and was working on the Whistler Energy II platform. It’s important to determine the exact cause of the accident and what could have caused the fatal injury. This can help the family of the decedent file a wrongful death claim against the responsible party or parties.
