Three workers injured in a November fire on Shell’s Enchilada platform in the Gulf of Mexico are suing the oil and gas company in a Texas county court. The suit claims Shell, its Gulf of Mexico subsidiary and a pipeline operator “acted with flagrant and malicious disregard” for the health and safety of the workers leading up to the incident. The lawsuit seeks a jury trial and more than $1 million in damage payments for the three men, who “sustained severe injuries” to the head, neck, back and other parts of their bodies. Shell International Exploration and Production Inc., Shell Offshore Inc. and Garden Banks Gas Pipeline, a subsidiary of Enbridge Pipelines, are named as defendants in the lawsuit. FULL ARTICLE and its sister non-profit websites,,,,,, and are owned by John Donovan.
