Two workers hurt in Antero gas well fire

By Staff reports

WEST UNION, W.Va. -- Two workers were hurt Sunday morning in a fire at an Antero Resources natural gas well in Doddridge County, officials said.

One worker was treated and released from a Clarksburg hospital. The other remained hospitalized in Pittsburgh, being treated for burns on the air and ear, said Antero spokesman Al Schopp. Both workers are Antero employes.

Schopp said that the workers were installing a new sand separator at a well pad on Ramseys Ridge Road near West Union when an oil condensate in the separator caught fire.

In July, two workers died in an explosion at a different Antero drilling site in Doddridge County.
