Increased Oil and Gas Oversight Needed
Oil and Gas Litigation Attorney
Sayles Werbner in Dallas
"The Department of Labor recently announced its plan for increased scrutiny of the oil and gas industry following the deaths of 138 oil field workers last year, a 23 percent increase since 2011 and the highest in 10 years. The plan is much needed as this is an industry that is increasingly pushing the envelope -- hiring a lot of new workers, not training them enough, not instituting enough safety standards. As a result, you're seeing an increase in injuries and an increase in fatalities."
Nicholson represents victims in cases involving oil and gas truck crashes, refinery explosions, wastewater truck accidents, defective equipment, gas leaks, collapsed decks, fires, falling equipment, gushers, blowouts and other dangerous situations.

Relaxing the Pemex Monopoly
Thompson & Knight in Monterrey
"A debate over the future of the Mexican energy industry is scheduled to begin this month, with proposed reforms that would open the oil and gas sector to foreign investment for the first time in 75 years. The changes could alter the long-standing monopoly of Pemex by allowing the government to enter into contracts and profit-sharing agreements directly with foreign oil and gas companies. These businesses and companies with expertise in horizontal drilling and fracking, together with service and equipment suppliers, could greatly benefit from the proposed changes. This historic development could greatly increase interest from major producers with the capital, skills and experience to access Mexico's shale and deep-water reserves. The proposal is aimed at boosting the country's oil and gas production, and some industry participants estimate that increase could be as much as 50 percent."
