One dead, two injured in Utah oil well explosion

An oil rig in Utah. Not the one that exploded, probably.

An explosion at a well site in eastern Utah has killed one worker and injured two others.

A tank exploded for unknown reasons Tuesday evening, killing 28-year-old contract welder Tyson Boren and injuring 32-year-old Rusty Harris and an unidentified man.

The well is owned by Newfield Exploration Co., which employs Harris. The tank was reportedly undergoing routine maintenance.

A fire resulted from the explosion, but it did not affect the drilling equipment. It burned in a nearby tank which contained up to 400 gallons of crude oil and other, unspecified equipment.

Newfield, based in Texas, has invested more than $1.7 billion into eastern Utah's oil fields.

See the story at the Salt Lake City Tribune.

The idea is to focus on facts and try and define a baseline problem to share.
