There was a death two days ago on a Unit rig outside of town. This morning there was a blow out on a Cactus rig.....I haven't heard of any injuries on that.

No injuries, just bad judgement.

Brother was on the well, happened to be his day off so he missed the big issue. He told me there's been quite a few issues on that well lately. He also told me they haven't been flaring the excess gas build-ups like they were supposed to. They wanted to save every precious bit of gas, and this is the result of their greed I imagine.

This topic is not about the cactus rig that had a blow out! This is about a Unit rig outside of town that did have a fatality like two days ago! My husband works for Unit and he had to go out there today and help them out because the guys had to take off after it happened.

Do you know the name of the man that was killed? It is heartwrenching when something like this happens.

It happened; know a flow hand wking 1/2 mi away, they blocked location and wouldn't let anyone on or off till OSHA got there the next morning, which is standard when there's a death. He talked to company man later, guy who got killed was either by the separator or in the mixer when it blew. They won't release names or info to media until OSHA is done w/ investigation.

Yes roughneck is right. That is what my husband said happened. It happened. My husband is a driller for Unit and he had to go out there yesterday to help them out because the whole crew that witnessed it had to take off. OSHA was there yesterday and they will be there today. His name was Royce and he had a 5 year old son and two step kids.

The blow out was on a cactus rig! There was a death on Unit Rig 128. My husband had to go work on that rig on one of his days off because the crew that witnessed it had to take off. You are being so rude. Not everyone that works for Unit knows about it right away.
