Storage tanks known to contain flammable and explosive gases were aligned on the well pad close to a diesel pump. Despite the fact that it is well-known that the storage tanks contained flammable and explosive gasses, the hatches on top of the tanks were left open. An explosive mixture of gasses from the storage tanks escapes and engulfed the employees on the well pad in an invisible explosive gas cloud, which ignited July 7, 2013.

Charles Arbogast and other workers were on the well site located near New Milton when a flash fire and explosion erupted, which resulted in severe and permanent injuries to Charles Arbogast.

Charles and Diane Arbogast, who are represented by Colombo Law, are suing the defendants due to permanent injuries sustained in this explosion.
