Injured by Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation?
Obtain Representation from a Charleston Gas & Oil Injury Attorney
Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation has come under fire for several environmental
and safety violations. The company's practice of fracking (drilling
into rock formations in the earth in order to extract gas and petroleum)
has stirred controversy. Fracking was initially thought to be the best
way to economically obtain gas, and many proponents continue to stand
behind the practice despite many recent findings that contradict this
belief and have begun to adversely affect the environment.

Taking a Stand Against Cabot's Violations
Fracking uses high-pressure water systems to break through the shale, minerals,
and rock in order to find gas. Locals living nearby Cabot Oil & Gas
Corporation have reported concerns that the groundwater has become contaminated,
initiating many lawsuits. Further, the company was ranked as the second
worst in its home state's Department of Environmental Protection for
water contamination violations.
The company has amassed hundreds of violations and has been forced to pay
thousands of dollars in fines for failing to implement safety measures,
putting its workers and nearby residents at risk.
Some of these violations include:
- Toxic exposure for employees
- Liquid gel spills
- Air contamination
- Methane contamination
- Lack of proper permits
- Failing to properly store and dispose waste
- Gas and fracking explosions
