Oil and gas fires and explosions may be the result of several factors, and may lead to grounds for a potential court case. Oil and gas fires and explosions expert witnesses may be experienced in such areas as petroleum engineering, fire investigation, fire protection engineering, fire safety science, failure analysis, chemical engineering, chemical and material safety, mechanical engineering, metallurgical engineering, and materials engineering, as well as the energy, gas, and power industries. Because so many professions may be related to these types of fires and/or explosions, it is imperative that the retained expert witness has a background matching the particular details of your case.
As with any type of accident, including those involving oil and gas fires and explosions, expert witnesses may be asked to provide an expert opinion based on an accident investigation and reconstruction. An arson investigation and evidence analysis may also be required if the fire cause and origin investigator believes the incident was intentional. Such evidence may include bombs, flammable liquids, and other types of explosives.
In the event of oil and gas fires and explosions, expert witnesses may also offer expert opinions regarding whether a violation of building code compliances may have contributed to the incident. Rules and regulations are especially important in any field involving oil and gas, as adhering to these standards would be beneficial in preventing fires and explosions.
