Atlantic Richfield Company
Workers Exposed to Asbestos
Atlantic Richfield Company (ARCO) has been founded in 1966 and operated as an oil and gas extraction company with over 1.300 refineries in the US, and operations in Indonesia, the North Sea, the South China Sea, and Mexico. Between 1970-1980, ARCO was one of the biggest oil companies in the world. Since petroleum is highly flammable, fireproof materials containing asbestos were used in refinery sites. Former employees of Atlantic Richfield Company may have cause for concern regarding asbestos-related lung diseases.
