GULF OF MEXICO – FATALITY ON TALOS PLATFORM IN WEST CAMERON
The Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement is conducting an investigation into the fatality of a third-party construction worker in an area of the Gulf of Mexico known as West Cameron 215A, about 64 miles south of Lake Charles, Louisiana.
The offshore oil and gas operator, Energy Resource Technology GOM, LLC, a subsidiary of Talos Production LLC, reported that the fatality occurred at approximately 10:30 am on Feb. 17, 2018. The deceased worker was involved in removing firewater piping at the time of the incident. No other personnel were harmed. There was no pollution as a result of the incident.
BSEE Gulf of Mexico Region investigators and inspectors began conducting a thorough investigation into the cause of the fatality over the weekend.
Talos said the worker was seriously injured and later died from the wounds. No one else was hurt, the company said.
“This is a tragic event and we extend our deepest sympathies to the family, friends and co-workers of our colleague,”
The incident occurred while Talos is in the process of going public. Talos, which is backed by private equity firms Apollo Global Management and Riverstone Holdings, is acquiring Louisiana-based Stone Energy in a nearly $2 billion merger. (Source: BSEE)
