Oklahoma jury delivers verdict for plaintiff in pipeline safety suit.

The Bartlesville (OK) Examiner-Enterprise (6/4) reports, “A Washington County jury last week awarded C&H Power Line Construction $26 million – the largest sum ever awarded locally – as well as an additional $1 million for punitive damages, following a three-week trial that centered on safety issues.” The Examiner-Enterprise continues, “The case was filed by C&H against Enterprise Products Operating, LLC and Enterprise Texas Pipeline, LLC, stemming from a fatal explosion on Enterprise’s North Texas 36 Pipeline in June 2010. The jury found that Enterprise failed to mark its pipeline in response to a ‘Call Before You Dig’ request made by C&H to the Texas ‘One-Call’ system. State and federal regulations require pipeline owners and utility companies to mark their pipelines in response to ‘Call Before You Dig’ requests within 48 hours of the call.”
