On April 20, , a blowout caused a fire and explosion on the rig that killed 11 employees and caused a major oil spill that continued uncontrolled for 87 days. A series of mechanical failures, lack of human judgment, faulty engineering design and improper team interaction came together to result in the largest oil spill known to mankind.
The blowout was the biggest offshore incident in the US and it had a profound impact on safety regulations in the GoM. As a direct outcome of the Macondo incident, the Drilling Safety Rule regarding wellbore reliability and well control equipment was implemented on October 14, The Modified Workplace Safety Rule was also implemented on October 15, , based on the lessons learned from the Macondo blowout.
BP Texas City On March 23, , during the startup of an isomerization unit, the safety relief valves of a distillation tower opened due to overfilling, allowing hydrocarbon liquids to flow into a disposal blowdown drum with a stack, which were also overfilled, resulting in a liquid release. The evaporation of the hydrocarbons produced a flammable vapor cloud that ignited and led to a series of fires and explosions.
Fifteen workers died and about were injured. This incident also resulted in significantly more interest in and attention to issues such as facility siting, atmospheric venting, leading and lagging indicators and safety culture. The Flixborough disaster On June 1, , in a caprolactam production plant, a temporary bypass line ruptured, resulting in the leak of almost 40 tons of cyclohexane that caused a huge vapor-cloud explosion. The tragic disaster killed 28 people including all the employees working in the control room.
There was the alarming possibility of killing more than employees if it were a normal working day instead of weekend. Also, widespread damage to property within a 6-mile radius around the plant was another major consequence.
The Flixborough explosion was a critical driver in moving process safety issues forward in the UK. The lessons learned from this disaster highlight the importance of HAZOP analysis, blast resistant control rooms and thorough studies prior to any modification in process plants.
Mexico City On November 19, , in an LPG installation in Mexico City, the failure of the safety valve of an LPG storage tank caused an overpressure inside the tank and a pipe rupture, leading to a leakage of LPG followed by an ignition and violent explosions. Approximately people were killed and more than were injured. Phillips On October 23, , in the Phillips 66 plant in Pasadena, Texas, the rupture of a seal on a polyethylene reactor caused the release of highly flammable ethylene and isobutene gas, forming a gas cloud and leading to a massive explosion in less than two minutes.
Twenty-three people were killed and more than injured. The day before the incident, a maintenance procedure had been performed by contractor personnel. This incident underscored the importance of rigid adherence to operating procedures and the implementation of an appropriate management system for contract workers. Columbia disaster The physical cause of the Columbia shuttle disaster was separation of insulation foam that then hit the carbon—carbon reinforced panel of the left wing, thus damaging the thermal protection system.
The tragic incident caused the death of all seven astronauts and resulted in shuttle debris being scattered over 2, square miles in Texas. However, the underlying causes for the disaster can be traced back to flaws in decision making at NASA. The Columbia incident also provided important lessons for crisis communication professionals, as well.
In fact, the lessons learned from the Columbia incident can be mapped to many other catastrophes such as the Piper Alpha or the Flixborough incident, covering issues such as sense of vulnerability, establishing an imperative for safety and valid on-time risk assessment.
