Jim and Chesapeake, what ever happened to green completions and closed loop systems? Why aren’t they mandated in our new ordinance? Please explain what I am seeing here. Is this what I can expect for the Truman/Cowboy Stadium drill site?
Are these flow back fluids NOT going through the separator because those holding tanks are not designed for fluids under higher pressure than produced water?
TCEQ told me these fluids HAVE to be vented or else a geyser would occur. We were told this is water vapor. If so, then it should not be under pressure and should be able to go through the separator and to the covered storage tanks.
This clearly is NOT what urban drilling is suppose to look like. How can we co-exist near noxious, high pressure, explodable water having chemicals, radiation, arsenic, heavy metals etc. exposed to the residents, students and customers at these local businesses?
