Mesothelioma and Asbestos in Texas


Texas is the primary domestic producer of petroleum products; this industry is among the three most dangerous industrial occupations in terms of asbestos exposure. Texas oil refineries and other facilities are operated by: BP Amoco, Chevron, Citgo, Esso, Exxon, Fina, Gulf, Mobil, and Shell. All of these corporations have been named defendants in asbestos lawsuits.

Petroleum and Asbestos in Texas

Like stone (of which it is a form), asbestos is heat-resistant, flame-retardant and impervious to chemical corrosion. Unlike stone, asbestos is soft and pliable, and therefore can be used in numerous applications that would normally require some type of soft, flexible fabric.

Whether in its crude form or in any of its several stages of refinement, petrochemicals are highly volatile making asbestos very useful when it comes to preventing death or injury from flame, or more importantly, property damage. Asbestos insulation was used to shield distillation columns, pipes and conduits, work surfaces and gaskets throughout the facility.

As asbestos insulation ages, it becomes brittle, and starts to crumble and release fibers into the environment. This state is known as friable. During Hurricane Rita, high winds damaged the refinery's insulation, spreading asbestos fibers throughout the region. Those who could have been exposed should seek medical attention at mesothelioma clinics in their area.

Oil Workers at Risk

In a 2003 British study, 45,000 oil industry workers who had been employed for a period of at least one year during the thirty-five year period between 1946 and 1971 were tracked; the subjects included those who actually worked in the refineries and those who were employed in delivery and distribution. Workers in the first category were found to have more cancer than those in the second.

Other Asbestos Industries in Texas

Texas is also home to numerous shipyards, power plants and chemical factories; all three have been identified as industries in which asbestos exposure constitutes a serious health risk. Power generation facilities are especially hazardous environments. Since asbestos is an effective electrical insulator it was used in almost every part of a power plant from conduit lagging to the machinery itself.

Until the early 1980s, asbestos insulation was used in almost every part of a ship's construction from the crows nest to the bilge. In a recent National Cancer Institute study, shipyard employees in a study of 4,700 people employed at a nearby Coast Guard facility demonstrated “significant excess mortality” from lung cancer and mesothelioma.

Naturally Occurring Asbestos in Texas

Naturally-occurring serpentine deposits are located near the Government Canyon State Natural Area northwest of San Antonio. Serpentine is the source of “white” chrysotile asbestos; 95% of all commercial asbestos was of this type.

Texas Cities Where Asbestos Exposure Occurred

Provided below is a list of cities in the state of Texas where asbestos jobsites are known to have been located. If you worked at any of these companies and/or jobsites in Texas, there is a possibility that you may have been exposed to harmful asbestos which is known to cause mesothelioma. Click on any link to view a complete list of jobsites in that city.

Asbestos Exposure at Texas Jobsites

If someone you know has ever worked at one of the Jobsites listed below, they may have been exposed to high levels of asbestos. Asbestos exposure at any one of these Jobsites could put them at risk for developing one of the following asbestos related diseases: malignant mesothelioma (a terminal cancer), asbestos related lung cancer, or asbestosis.
