GIBSON, La. — A maintenance company has released the names of two of the three people killed in a pipeline explosion in Terrebonne Parish.

Danos, an oil and gas service company, says two of their contract employees, 40-year-old Samuel Brinlee, of Berwick, and 36-year-old Casey Ordoyne, of Larose, died in Thursday’s accident at the Transcontinental Gas Pipeline Co. facility in Gibson. Transcontinental is a subsidiary of major natural gas supplier Williams Partners.

Danos CEO and President Hank Dano identified the workers in a news release on Friday.

The third victim, a contract employee for Furmanite, an oilfield maintenance company, has not been identified.

Danos says eight of his employees were working at the plant when the explosion occurred. Two are being treated at Terrebonne General Medical Center for minor injuries.
