At Fieldwood Energy, our top priority is the safety of our employees and contractors. We regret that yesterday afternoon there was an incident at our West Delta 105 "E" platform that occurred when employees of Turnkey Cleaning Services were cleaning a heater treater, which is a piece of equipment that separates oil from water and other liquids. Turnkey Cleaning Services is a Louisiana based industrial cleaning service company that specializes in the cleaning of offshore facilities, including the cleaning of heater treaters.
At Fieldwood Energy, our top priority is the safety of our employees and contractors. This incident just occurred, so we do not have many details at this point. The incident occurred at the West Delta 105 "E" facility, which is located offshore Louisiana. One employee of a contractor was fatally injured and a second contractor employee was seriously injured. We have accounted for all other personnel who were working at the facility. This was an isolated incident that has been fully contained. The facility was not damaged and there was no pollution that resulted from the incident. We currently are working hand-in-hand with emergency response personnel and will provide further updates once we learn additional information. In the interim, our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the deceased and injured contractor employees.
