The first producing oil well, the Heywood #1, was found in Acadia Parish. Since then, oil producers have needed to find ways to refine crude oil so that it can be used. Currently, the state of Louisiana has 17 oil refineries in operation, with a refining capacity of 3.4 million barrels of crude oil a day. That amounts to 20% of the nation’s refining capacity.
A refinery explosion can cause serious injuries and fatalities. If you or someone you know was injured in a refinery explosion in Louisiana, it is important to speak with an experienced attorney as soon as possible. Louisiana law only allows a certain time period to file a lawsuit for a serious injury or death related to a plant explosion, so it is important that you speak with an attorney right away.
