Esso Petroleum and a contractor firm will face criminal charges in Britain related to the 2008 death of a maintenance worker on a fuel tanker, Reuters reported Friday citing state prosecutors.

Juan Antonio Quintanilla Romero died when a large fuel pipe suspended from a crane--that collapsed due to a severely corroded bolt--fell on him, the Crown Prosecution Service said, according to Reuters.

The tanker was berthed at an oil refinery owned by Esso, a subsidiary of Exxon Mobil Corp. (XOM).

"Esso is disappointed at the decision of the Crown Prosecution Service to bring the charges against us...and we intend to contest and defend ourselves against the charges," the company told Reuters in a statement.

The contractor, Austin & McLean, denied the charges against it, Reuters said.
