I think they're referring to another oil rig in Osage County - the Aug. 11th fatality. It's not clear though, cause it says "this rig." Did both die on the same rig????

As a person whose family has alway been in the oil field, I am familiar with the dangers and my heart goes out to the families whose loved ones were involve in this accident. My condolences to Mr. Hydes family and my prayers to those that were burned.

no, thank God only one man died on this rig. i know a man who worked on this rig. this sort of thing just happens from time to time on these pulling units, and there isnt anyway of knowing it will happen and very very little can be done when it happens. this is not an uncommon thing to happen, its just uncommon for it to be this devastating. this is a safe company, but they were just at the wrong place at the wrong time with the right factors for it to happen.

Thanks Ray. I think it's always been a dangerous business but the rewards are there too. My prayers for the families and men.

Our family and others in a rural area south of Bixby have been contacted by an oil broker that has bought our mineral rights. There are old wells out here long before so many of us bought land and live out here now. Now we have to live with loud obnoxious wells in our back yards from an era years ago when NO ONE LIVED out here????
