Gas Well Explosion and Lawsuits O Day

14 March 2007 at 12:03:46 PM

Man in Kern County, CA dies when two natural gas wells exploded and caught fire.

The blasts and fire killed the driver of a vacuum truck owned by Johnston Trucking of Taft, Kern County Fire Department spokesman Doug Johnston said.

Illinois State Sues Pennsylvania Oil and Gas Pipeline Company for fuel spills in Illinois.

Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan wants Buckeye Partners to reimburse the state for cleanup costs associated with at least three spills, including one in the Macon County community of Harristown in June 2006.

"The release at Harristown presented a serious situation that required considerable time and expense by authorities to clean up, and to test private wells in the vicinity to ensure public safety," Madigan said in a statement released Monday.

According to the lawsuit, Madigan alleges that the company was liable when more than 140,000 gallons of gasoline was released at the Harristown facility. Some of the fuel contaminated groundwater and eventually flowed into a tributary of the Sangamon River, the suit says.

Madigan also alleges that several thousands of gallons of diesel fuel was released in November 2005, when an above ground storage tank was being filled at Buckeye Partner's Hartford Terminal in Madison County. The complaint also describes a November 2006 diesel release at Buckeye Partners' Chillicothe terminal in Peoria County.
