FYI Benzene (a carcinogen) is in ALL the phases of Natural Gas Extraction…
- Click here to see that the City of Arlington has MSDS sheets for Benzene that Chesapeake uses during the DRILLING STAGE …
- Click here to read how they use Benzene during FRACKING STAGE
- Click here to see how Benzene amounts are dangerous to the workers exposed to the waste during the FLOWBACK STAGE.
- Click here to learn how that waste driven to INJECTION WELLS have Phenol (a major metabolite of Benzene) had 93 million pounds injected in TX in 2011.
