Blowout at EOG site in Eagle Ford Shale – Nabors Rig Blows Out

I would like to share this NEWS.

A drilling rig owned by Nabors Drilling USA blew out and caught fire Wednesday evening just before 7 pm while drilling an Eagle Ford Shale horizontal well for EOG Resources in Lavaca County, Texas.


The well control incident occurred at Farm to Market 966 and State Highway 111 near Petersville, Texas. No injuries were reported.
Well control specialists from Houston have been called to put out the rig fire and conduct an investigation according to Shiner Volunteer Fire department Chief Mark Panus.
A nearby resident, who asked not to be identified, said her husband was in the front yard with their 4 year-old son at the time of the explosion and saw workers running. When he asked workers what happened the workers kept running so he too grabbed their son and ran, she said.
