Report faults Chevron in deadly Pennsylvania gas fire

  • The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection faults Chevron (NYSE:CVX) site managers in a new report on a natural gas well fire in February that killed one worker.
  • The report says a contract worker with no oil field experience worked on the well, contrary to company policy, and that the fire may have been caused by human error when a lock screw was ejected from the well, allowing high-pressure methane gas to escape.
  • The report also says CVX’s well site managers did not always provide enough oversight to contractors at the site.
