Background
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) in the United States provides a comprehensive publication entitled “Hydraulic Fracturing and Flowback Hazards Other than Respirable Silica.” It includes sections on hazards during transport, during mixing and injection, hazards during pressure pumping and flowback operation, and possible gas encounters. Many of the examples and proposed best practice standards in the report are recognizably the result of past incidents. In the publication, OSHA also reinforces that “flammable atmospheres are a significant hazard during flowback. Leaks and other uncontrolled releases need only an ignition source once the airborne concentration reaches the lower explosive limit (LEL)” – and in turn urges companies to approach safety proactively.

“Leaks and other uncontrolled releases need only an ignition source once the airborne concentration reaches the lower explosive limit (LEL).”
