Natural gas expert witnesses are knowledgeable in the energy and petroleum industry, as natural gas can be utilized for many unique purposes. Natural gas refers to fossil fuel, which is generated when several different elements from underneath the ground, including vegetation, organisms, and various gases, are heated and pressurized over a period of thousands of years. The act of collecting natural gas from the earth involves several procedures, each of which may become the subject of a lawsuit if carried out in an incorrect manner.
Those working within the petroleum and natural gas fields must adhere to specific industry standards of care, as working with oil field systems, oil rigs, oil and gas, pipelines, drilling, welding, and well construction can be very dangerous for employees. Because the natural gas industry utilizes especially hazardous workplaces, natural gas expert witnesses may be required to offer an expert opinion regarding the rules and regulations of Occupational Safety and Health (OSHA).
Natural gas expert witnesses are licensed and/or certified in such areas as engineering, safety, crane operation, welding, and other skills related to the field. Lawsuits involving natural gas are often related to gas pipelines in terms of property management and safety for the surrounding area. Accident investigation and reconstruction, as well as failure analysis, may be utilized to determine the source of a natural gas-related incident.
