Deadly explosion Encana’s latest woe by Jameson Berkow, Financial Post, August 17, 2012, Calgary Herald
The rare and tragic incident, which occurred at a recently completed site northeast of Denver at approximately 1 p.m. MT on Wednesday, comes at a particularly bad time for Canada’s largest natural gas producer. Calgary-based Encana has been under fire since June for allegedly colluding with Chesapeake Energy Corp., its main rival in the United States, to drive down the price of land in Michigan. … The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration has jurisdiction over incidents of this nature. Todd Flick, a Denver-based safety and health inspector for the federal agency, confirmed OSHA is working with Encana to determine the cause of the accident, noting an investigation of this nature could take a maximum of six months to complete.
