New Orleans, LA Oil Refinery Accident Injury Lawyers
Oil refining is a process where crude oil is processed and refined into more useful products such as gasoline, diesel fuel, asphalt base, kerosene, and liquid petroleum gas. Oil refineries are often large and complicated industrial complexes with extensive piping containing streams of hot or hazardous fluids. Such hazardous conditions require refinery plant owners to follow strict safety rules and regulations to prevent industrial accidents such as fire and explosions. Corrosion of the metallic components in the refinery can often lead to failure of the equipment. Oil refineries are therefore required to follow a strict monitoring and maintenance schedule to seek out and identify corroded components. The failure to follow these protocols can result in oil refinery accidents such as massive fires and explosions.
