My husband just told me that he was out on the oilfield rig thursday night at 9:00pm and one of his crew members killed another worker, Glenn Owen (19 years Old) by accident...that he was crushed by a pipe? I was wondering if it was true or not. I couldn't find any news about the accident or about Caliber Casing Company? If you could let me know, thanks. Sorry if he is dead, poor guy...:(

GLEN WAS 23 YRS OLD. HE WAS MY DAUGHTERS FIANCE. AND YES HE WAS KILLED IN AN AWFUL ACCIDENT, HE WAS CRUSHED. THIS WHOLE ORDEAL AFFECTED A MAJORITY OF THE TOWN HE GREW UP IN, HIS FAMILY AND OF COURSE JENNIFER. HOPEFULLY THIS KIND OF SENSLESS ACCIDENT WON'T EVER HAPPEN AGAIN. HE WAS A GOOD GUY AND WE ALL MISS HIM TERRIBLY!

My brother was killed on aug.25 in a semi truck wreck hauling pipe in the oil flelds outside of Vernal, Utah. I looked and looked thur several newspapers local to Vernal and never did find anything about the wreck. I finelly emailed the editor of the Untah Basin Standard asking for info . The email I recieved in return said there are "so many deaths in the oils fields" that the newspapers don't cover them .

what can concerned wife tell me about Glen Owen's accidental death?. Glen's mother would like to know. Also any other information that might help to honor her fallen son.

if you need more information on the accident, contact OSHA. It's public information.

I am truly sorry for the loss of one of our oil patch partners. I want to remind everyone who reads this that safety should always put safety first and if something doesnt seem right to take some time and be try to come up with a solution to the problem. Always remember to be careful and remember about the ones at home who depend on you to return home safely after yoer hitch.

Very sorry for the loss of Glens' life, my sympathies to all whose lives have been affected by his or any of the many who have lost their loved ones.

I was led to this forum doing a search for F.L. Reece and/or Shirley Teague. I was told that F.L. was working for Caliber Casing and I need to get some important information to him but have since found out he no longer works for Caliber.

I found the remarks made by "Hick" rather interesting as I worked for J.T. Teague when he had a company in Oklahoma. From what "Hick" stated this is not accurate information unless J.T. has drastically changed and I seriously doubt that. Especially given the fact he was his usual generous, kind, caring, self along with his lovely wife in giving F.L. a chance after his release from prison. F.L. has ruined his oil field reputation in Oklahoma yet J.T. and his wife helped him through his prison term, along with his last female enabler Shirley Teague who now has a U.S. Postal case filed against her.

If any of you know F.L. you might want to give him a message that he needs to contact either his sister or his last ex as their is some information he truly does need to know for his own benefit.

Wish you guys all the best, please be safe out there and remember that drugs/alcohol and the oil field do not make for a safe working place for anyone.

The media will not cover anything negative about the oilfield I have lost my farm of 20 years and being foreclosed on because of this abuse. When I wrote the politicians of Oklahoma asking for help they told me. We do not have jurisdiction to help. They want my vote but they can't help the people. What you received is called a block letter. So sorry to hear about your brother there will be more lives lost from oilfield abuse than there will be in Iraq.

I am a very dear friend of Glen Owen's mother. This whole thing makes me want to throw up, and i also have to ask myself; What country are we living in? The State of Utah, J.T. Teague, and Caliber casing will get theirs, someday, somehow. What goes around comes around. Period.

to Rhett Poore: watch what you say. you were not there. the state of Utah, Mr. Teague or Caliber had nothing to do with Glen's death. I suppose you never thought that perhaps Glen had been smoking pot before going on the job!!!!!

STRANGE YOU CALL YOURSELF ONE WHO KNOWS. YOU MAKE IT SOUND AS IF YOU WERE THERE YOURSELF. ALSO IT IS STRANGE IT DIDNT MENTION THIS OR ANYTHING LIKE THIS IN THE OSHA REPORT. WHAT IT DID MENTION WAS THE OPERATOR WHICH WAS RUNNING THE PEICE OF MACHINERY WHICH HIT GLEN IN THE HEAD WITH A 2000 PEICE OF METAL HAD EARLIER BEEN TESTED FOR DRUGS WITH DUE CAUSE. THIS OPERATOR ALSO WASNOT EVEN SUPPOSED TO BE ON THIS SITE. NO ONE KNEW WHY HE WAS THERE. SEEMS MR. TEAGUE SHOULD KNOW WHO IS WORKING ON HIS RIGS. SOMEONE COULD GET KILLED. STRANGE YOU FELT TO WRITE THIS ON THE ANNIVERSARY OF GLEN'S DEATH. YOU WAITED TILL APRIL 5TH 2009. TRYING TO FIND AN EXCUSE FOR ANY KIND OF GUILT YOU MIGHT HAVE. YOU REALLY DIDNT SAY HOW YOU KNOW SO MUCH. GLEN WAS 23 , A SON , BROTHER AND GOOD FRIEND TO MANY. SOMETIMES IT'S HARD TO BREATHE BECAUSE OF A LOSS OF A SPECIAL PERSON WHO COMES ALONG ONCE IN A LIFETIME. BUT THEN AGAIN I'M SURE IT'S HARD FOR THE PERSONS CARRYING THE GUILT TO GO ON EVERYDAY. AM I RIGHT?

If you are working for him... Please find other work soon. Glen told me two days before his death that it was getting dangerous out there and was planning on coming home... However he was killed before that could happen! For you and your familys sake... Get out now! There are plenty of safe places out there and caliber is not one of them!!!!
