COMMENTS
The n-th row polynomial, P(n,x), has ordered zeros {z_k < z_(k+1), 0<k<n} that satisfy z_k + z_(n-k) = -(n+1) and integerpart(z_k) = -k. For even rows, polynomial P(2n,x) has zero z_n = -(n+1)/2. Example: at n=6, P(6,x) has zeros z_1 = -1.336553473264694, z_2 = -2.426299641757407, z_3 = -3.5, z_4 = -4.573700358242594, z_5 = -5.663446526735307.
The higher-order exponential integrals E(x,m,n) are defined in A163931 and the asymptotic expansion of E(x,m=2,n) can be found in A028421. We determined with the latter that E(x,m=2,n+1) = (exp(-x)/x^2)*(1 - (3+2*n)/x + (11+12*n+3*n^2)/x^2 - (50+70*n+30*n^2+ 4*n^3)/x^3 + .... ). The polynomial coefficients in the numerators lead to the coefficients of the triangle given above. The numerators of the o.g.f.s of the right hand columns of this triangle lead for z = 1 to A001147. - Johannes W. Meijer, Oct 16 2009

FORMULA
First column is A000254 (Stirling numbers of first kind s(n, 2): a(n+1)=(n+1)*a(n)+n!), while sum of rows is A001705 (generalized Stirling numbers). Also related to Harmonic numbers: P(n, 0)=n!*H(n), H(n)=harmonic number.
T(n,k) = (-1)^(n+k)*k*Stirling1(n+1,k+1). - Johannes W. Meijer, Oct 16 2009
E.g.f.: 1/(1 - z)^(x+1)*log(1/(1 - z)). Cf. A028421. - Peter Bala, Jan 06 2015
