How Gas Explosions in Houston Occur

Gas explosions can occur in a variety of locations in and around the Houston area, including in the home, on the job site, and other areas.

Home explosions

Most homes do use gas in some way, including gas used to power a stove, heat the home, or heat the water. Unfortunately, a leading cause of gas explosions in homes is natural gas leaks. These leaks often occur due to defective control valves or gas connectors or a leaking tank.

Work explosions

Gas explosions also frequently occur at worksites. These explosions are usually caused by the proximity of the gas tanks to combustible materials or chemicals. Additionally, any type of gas leak can be detrimental around certain worksites, particularly those where sparks are liable to ignite the gas in the air. Anytime employers fail to follow proper safety protocols or fail to upgrade equipment, explosions are more likely to occur.

Other explosions

Aside from gas explosions in the home or workplace, there are other areas where natural gas can lead to explosions. This can include incidents that occur:

  • When excavating near pipelines
  • Due to gas leaks at any point along the gas line
  • When gas hookups are improperly installed
  • During drilling incidents or fracking explosions
  • Due to tanker truck explosions
  • Due to gas buildup in mines
  • …and more
