Wyoming oil field explosions, fire severely burn 3 workers
CARPENTER, Wyo. (AP) - Explosions and a fire at a Wyoming oil field have severely burned three workers. Fire officials say the workers were taken to hospitals in the capital of Cheyenne and across the border in Greeley, Colorado, after the blasts at a compressor station late Thursday. The unidentified workers were contract employees of Houston-based EOG Resources. A fire official said Friday that he was told a natural gas leak likely caused the fire. Oil wells produce substantial volumes of natural gas, which is either burned off or sent to market by pipeline. Compressor facilities keep gas pipelines pressurized.
