Common Causes of Pipeline Explosions
Pipeline explosions are incredibly damaging. Data from the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration shows that over the last nearly 20 years, there were 12,795 pipeline incidents recorded causing 276 fatalities and 1,144 injuries. The estimated economic costs for these pipeline incidents total over $10 billion.
Common causes of pipeline explosions include:
- Aging infrastructure
- Poor maintenance
- Improper installation
- Improper repairs
- Failure to respond to leaks
- Defective pipes, valves, or joints
- Over pressurization
- Damage from digging, excavation, or demolition
Any number of these issues can create dangerous circumstances that may lead to a pipeline explosion. As Texas is one of the largest producers of oil and gas in the U.S., unfortunately many pipeline explosions happen right here. Victims of pipeline explosions often suffer serious injuries including severe burns, amputations, paralysis, as well as death.
Pipeline explosions can occur along the pipeline or even in your home. Natural gas leaks from bad pipelines can fill houses with natural gas that can lead to asphyxiation or even a house explosion from the smallest spark. Pipeline explosions also often injure pipeline workers just trying to do their jobs.
