Company Profiles

The Gulf of Mexico has become a hub of offshore oil rig activity, with a flurry of activity sparking in recent years after the advent of new drilling technology. Companies are continuing to lease, explore, drill, produce, and develop the area, as well as participate in large projects throughout the Gulf. The advancement in certain technologies has allowed deepwater drilling to flourish in recent years as well, with companies drilling deeper than ever to tap into undiscovered oil fields. However, with these drilling operations comes the increased risk of blowouts and resulting oil rig explosions.

The following companies have an active presence in the Gulf:

  • P. Moller-Maersk Group
  • AllSeas USA, Inc.
  • Anadarko Petroleum
  • British Petroleum (BP)
  • Chevron
  • Cobalt International Energy L.P.
  • ConocoPhillips
  • Ensco
  • ExxonMobil
  • Global Industries
  • Halliburton Company
  • Hercules Offshore Inc.
  • Hess Corporation
  • MacGregor Group
  • Marathon Oil Corporation
  • Murphy Oil Corporation
  • National Oilwell Varco
  • Noble Energy Inc.

  • Petrobas America Inc.
  • Royal Dutch Shell
  • Samson Investment Company
  • Schlumberger Limited
  • Statoil ASA
  • The Martin Companies

Offshore Injuries

While many injuries stem from the very dangerous incidence of oil rig explosions, oil rig workers may also receive any number of offshore injuries that plague ordinary seaman onboard vessels. These injuries can result from slip and fall accidents while on deck, injuries caused by faulty equipment, or injuries caused by the release of chemicals onboard the vessel. An offshore oil rig worker is entitled to receive compensation for their injuries, and this right has become federally protected through the expansion of several different federal maritime statutes which cover offshore workers in addition to seaman. An experienced maritime law attorney will be able to assist you in determining which claim to file for damages and the amount of claim you are entitled to receive. You should not be forced to cover the costs of your resulting injuries when you were injured during the course of your employment.
