Federal Prosecutors Files Criminal Charges Against Black Elk Energy
Aug 18 15
Federal prosecutors have filed criminal charges against Black Elk Energy, accusing it of safety lapses that led to a fatal explosion at one of its Gulf of Mexico production platforms. When a construction crew started the work, vapors from the tank ignited, setting off a series of explosions on the platform. Two tanks were blown into the Gulf of Mexico. Another careened into the platform crane, destroying it. Oil rained down on the lower deck of the platform, where other crews were working. Prosecutors allege that about 480 barrels of oil and water were spilled negligently into the Gulf of Mexico as a result, providing the basis for a Clean Water Act violation that carries a potential fine of $528,000.
Burn Victim Sues Black Elk Energy over Injuries from Oil Platform Explosion
Oct 30 13
A worker who suffered disfiguring burns in a deadly explosion last year on an oil production platform in the Gulf of Mexico is suing Black Elk Energy LLC, the Wood Group USA Inc. and others based on claims that their negligence led to his horrific injuries. The lawsuit was filed on behalf of Renato Dominguez by attorneys Jason Itkin, Cory Itkin and Noah Wexler of Arnold & Itkin LLP and Reda Hicks at Diamond McCarthy LLP in Galveston County Court at Law. Mr. Dominguez claims the companies in charge of the platform failed to properly train and supervise workers; didn't provide adequate safety equipment or medical treatment; didn't inspect the platform; and violated federal labor laws and other regulations. Mr. Dominguez, who was working as a pipefitter at the production site, is one of several Filipino workers injured in the Nov. 16, 2012, explosion that left three men dead. After treatment in a hospital in Baton Rouge, La., he has been recovering in Galliano, La.
