Barnett Shale

   

Were You Injured in an Oil Field Accident in the Barnett Shale?

The Barnett Shale is a large reservoir of natural gas beneath a large section of Northern Texas. Even as oil wells have begun to tap out the large amount of oil once buried deep beneath the surface, energy companies are beginning to find ways to extract the trillions of gallons of natural gas reserves bound up in the shale rock.

Exploring for natural gas and other energy resources in a shale can be more dangerous than traditional methods of drilling for oil and gas. Shale exploration and gas extraction often requires specialized heavy equipment and operations that make shale fields among the most dangerous workplaces in America.

If you are in the oil and gas industry and were injured in an accident in the Barnett Shale in Texas, talk to a gas and oil injury attorney at The Callahan Law Firm as soon as possible. Our trial lawyers have a history of success representing injured workers and their families against drilling companies and other subcontractors who may be held liable for the accident that caused your injury or the death of your loved one.
