Ruptured oil well in Texas burning after blowout and explosion

A ruptured oil well in Texas owned by EOG Resources Inc was burning on Thursday hours after a blowout and explosion, the company said.

“The blowout, which EOG called a ‘well control incident and fire,’ occurred Wednesday evening and the blaze was contained though still burning on Thursday,” said a report.

EOG said it didn’t know what caused the rupture and fire, but no one was injured in the blast at its Eagle Ford shale oil drilling operation in Lavaca County, some 134 miles west of Houston.

“EOG is assembling well control experts and specialized equipment to safely control the well and extinguish the fire,” the company said.

“Nabors Industries, which has the world’s largest land-rig fleet, owns the drilling rig at the site that was engulfed in flames,” said the report.
