  1. Oilfield work is inherently dangerous. God bless the folks that choose this field to supply us with our energy. Our prayers go to the person hurt and his family. Safety standards, no matter how rigid, are only effective to the same degree they are followed. Berry/Linn, when notified of a security issue by this website (and by the landowner) on private land recently, did move to correct it. We hope they show the same diligence in making sure their contractors follow and enforce their safety protocols. The men on these rigs deserve nothing less.
