Petri v. Peregrine Oil & Gas, LP
Peregrine hired Wood Group Pressure Control, LP to perform work on its fixed offshore unmanned platform. Wood Group provided employees and equipment to service and maintain the Peregrine platform. A Wood Group employee was swept off a rig by heavy seas and drowned. Because Peregrine had no employees on the platform on the day of the incident and gave no supervision or instruction to Wood Group or its employees, the court granted summary judgment in favor of Peregrine.
