Chemical Plant & Refinery Accidents

As any Texan knows, the backbone of our state can be summarized in two words — Oil and Gas. While the chemical plants and oil and gas refineries are a valuable part of the state’s economy, they are also a source of accidents, some of which are more serious than others.
