Update: Chevron Well Fire in Greene County Still Burning
Yesterday MDN told you of the explosion and well fire at Chevron’s Lanco 7H well pad, in a remote area of Greene County, PA, northwest of Bobtown. The explosion/fire began around 6:45 am Tuesday (see Explosion & Fire at Chevron Well in SWPA – 1 Person Missing). The update is that the fire still burns–out of control–although it hasn’t spread to several other wells on the same well pad, yet. The specialists brought in to put the fire out, a company called Wild Well Control, are evaluating and planning and apparently getting ready to go into action. The one missing contract worker, which we have learned is from Cameron International, a Fortune 500 company that specializes in completing wells (flow control), is still missing.
Below are a few more select bits of information along with the four updates provided thus far from Chevron itself about the accident:
