Common Causes of Drilling Rig Failures
Although some injury risks in the oilfield industry may be considered “part of the job,” serious and unnecessary accidents may also be caused by substandard workplace safety measures on the part of oil companies, contractors, and equipment manufacturers. There are also third parties whose negligence may be responsible for oilfield accidents, including independent contractors like rig movers, wireline operators, logging companies, and fracking companies.
Some of the most common causes of drilling rig failures and collapses include:
- Heavy equipment failures
- Lack of adequate training
- Errors in the drilling process
- Worker fatigue
- Rig blowouts
- Failure to use proper safeguards
