Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 200812519Event: 11/21/2007Two Employees Are Struck And Killed By Valve Pieces
The employees were conducting fracturing operations. A pump seal had to be seated in between stages. The pump operator began to pressure-up the line to set the seal prior to the employees that were out of the area, rigging up the riser. The pump operator did not see any pressure on his controls and continued to pressure up the line to the point of failure of the wheel valve. When the wheel valve failed, two employees in the area of the well head were struck by high pressure and valve pieces. Employee #1 employee died on site, and Employee #2 was pronounced dead at the hospital.
