Rig Explosion on the Eagle Ford

A drilling rig exploded today near Victoria, Texas. Thankfully everyone made it off the rig safely. But the fire will burn for days.

This could happen here - it could have happend in April had there been a spark near the blow out off of Jim Christal Road. Something to remember as we continue to allow development close to pad sites.
