167 Dead: The Worst Oilfield Explosion in Human History

The platform began production in 1976, first as an oil platform and then later converted to gas production. An explosion and resulting fire destroyed it on 6 July 1988, killing 167 men, with only 61 survivors

 

The oil platform piper alpha was destroyed by a gas leak in July 1988, and is still the worst offshore oilfield disaster to date (in terms of human life lost.)
