When the lights went out April 11 2011 all Fracking Hell broke loose at two different padsites

That fateful night on April 11 2011, there was …not one BUT TWO emission events at the Chesapeake/Fulson site, (which sickened a resident)  AND SIMULTANEOUSLY at the Dalworthington Garden’s XTO/Pappy Elkins site that may have been PREVENTABLE via earlier reported emission events.

Weeks earlier there were calls to 911 for both sites having loud sounds. Facebook alerted me to the March 3rd “sand flying everywhere” evening event at the XTO/Pappy Elkins site, and the next morning, a panicked resident called about the Chesapeake/Fulson March 4th loud sound.  I felt so helpless as she said “I don’t know what to do-should I evacuate-was I exposed?” 

Originally that resident, Jane Lynn, near the Fulson site was told by Maria Carbajal, from the Arlington city staff gas well dept. that the noise was from a planned pressure valve test noise, but that is not the right time frame because Petroleum Engineer, Larry Hulsey, wrote a letter to Bridgette White with the City of Arlington’s Gaswell Dept in May, telling her that the Fulson 1H was pressure tested by Choice Safety Services LP on March 9th 2011.

So what was the source of the loud sound that frightened residents days before the real March 9 pressure test? The bigger question is why did the 1H pass the pressure test and then fail it on April 11? I believe the March 3 & 4 emision events at both sites should have warranted a full fledged witch hunt to prevent what I believe was warning signs leading up to the two failures on April 11.

How many other wells with this problem will have emission events when we loose power at these urban electric compression stations? This is just one more reason electric compressor stations for urban drilling was NOT thought out ….see what can happen when the lights go out?


About Kim Triolo Feil

Since TX Statute 253.005 forbids drilling in heavily settled municipalities, I unsuccessfully ran for City Council Seat to try to enforce this. Since Urban Drilling, our drinking water has almost tripled for TTHM's. Before moving to Arlington in 1990, I lived in Norco’s “cancer alley”, a refinery town. It was only after Urban Drilling in Arlington did I start having health effects. After our drill site was established closest to my home, the chronic nosebleeds started. I know there are more canaries here in Arlington having reactions to our industrialized airshed (we have 55-60 padsites of gas wells). Come forward and report to me those having health issues especially if you live to the north/northwest of a drill site so I can map your health effects on this blog.
