Hazards of manual fluid sampling in oil fields

Fluid sampling and gauging are routine tasks in oil production fields across the nation. Unfortunately for oil workers, these tasks can be very hazardous. Between 2010 and 2014, nine deaths in oil fields occurred due to exposure to hydrocarbon gas and lack of oxygen during the fluid sampling or gauging process, including one death in Colorado. When the concentration of hydrocarbon gas is sufficiently high, a spark or open flame can set off an explosion.
