  • Toxic vapors have killed three Colorado oil and gas workers, nine in the U.S.

    Published: Mon, May 18, 2015

    DENVER - Federal officials issued a warning about the danger of inhaling chemicals at oil wells following the deaths of nine workers in the past five years. All the deaths involved people at crude production tanks. Colorado and North Dakota each had three deaths, and Texas, Oklahoma and Montana each had one death. Federal health officials sounded a national alarm over a dangerous trend in America's oil fields. The men died after inhaling toxic amounts of hydrocarbon chemicals after either tank gauging — measuring the level of oil or other byproducts in tanks coming out of wells — or from taking samples of oil for more testing.

But the men were later found to have all inhaled toxic amounts of hydrocarbon chemicals after either taking measurements of oil or other byproducts in the tank or takings samples of oil for testing. The industry says the sudden rise in deaths could be linked to the number of inexperienced workers
