The scheduled test had just been done and approved by the toughest inspection process in any industry including the nuclear. The well was being reopened and the gass blast came as an over pressure sudden surge. This was a freak accident, not sabotage. This sort of accident is why the process is inherently dangerous dealing with such pressures as 40,000 pounds per square inch!

I’m posting the link here to Mark Levin’s interview with the survivor. Interesting so far, though pretty technical.

That is unreal. To put it in perspective, a 12 gauge shotgun load is limited to about 11,500 psi, and that for just a fraction of a second.
