INCIDENT AT WEST DELTA 105 "E" Gulf of Mexico

Incident at Fieldwood Energy

WASHINGTON - An explosion at oil and gas operator Fieldwood Energy's Echo Platform in the Gulf of Mexico on Thursday killed one person and injured at least one, but no pollution was reported, a U.S. safety agency and the company said. The explosion occurred just before 3 p.m. CST (2 p.m. EST/1900 GMT) at West Delta 105, about 12 miles (19 km) off the coast of New Orleans, the U.S. Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement said in a statement.
Fieldwood Energy LLC is a Houston-based portfolio company of Riverstone Holdings LLC. Fieldwood is focused on the acquisition and development of conventional oil and gas assets in North America, including the Gulf of Mexico.

The Echo Platform was not in production at the time of the incident. The facility damage was limited to the explosion area and there was no pollution reported


"The Echo Platform was not in production at the time of the incident. The facility damage was limited to the explosion area and there was no pollution reported," it said. The agency said three people were injured and were being treated at an onshore medical facility.
During the cleaning process, one Turnkey employee was fatally injured and a second suffered visible injuries. The Turnkey employee who suffered visible injuries was immediately flown to West Jefferson Hospital for evaluation and treatment. Two other individuals who were on the platform complained of ringing in their ears, so they also were flown to the same hospital to be evaluated. All three of these individuals have been evaluated and released from the hospital. All other personnel on the platform have been accounted for and are safe.
