Oil and Gas Worker Who Was Injured in a Frac Tank Explosion Is Awarded $30M

Legal gavel with U.S. money under it.

Steve Straughen suffered life-altering injuries when a frac tank he was working on exploded and he was thrown in the air. Now, Straughen has just won a $30 million judgment in Colorado federal court.

The explosion happened in December 2019 while Straughen was working at a site near the intersection of County Roads 90 and 35 in Weld County.

A federal jury determined the oil and gas company he worked for, BHS, owned by DHI Energy Service, owes Straughen $30 million for their alleged negligence because the tank he was working on had holes in it, which created an explosive reaction.
