22 Demands before URBAN Drilling starts by the Cowboy Stadium in Arlington TX


1) Mandate electric drilling rig in urban areas, (have back up dieseal power generation)
2) Use closed mud containers
3) Use electric compressors and generators to frack with (if technology doesn’t exist-wait)
4) Have aerial water spray mist for flying frack sand
5) No diesel truck idling (goal is LNG fleets)
6) Have initial flowback fluids go into closed containers (no open tank or well bore venting at any life cycle phase of the well… if technology doesn’t exist-wait). Flowing into a closed container would logically entail negative pressure tanks with scrubbers. Otherwise flowback into Green Completion separators immediately-not later when the gas is detected.
7) Need 24 hour hotline to TCEQ and City Gas Well Inspectors. Our city website’s online status report is too vague. (ex. currently it can say “workover” and no real information of what that entails. Breathers do not need to be downwind to pre-production and maintenance activities. They need to know that they are risking their health. It’s time for the truth.
8) Equip First Responders with sensitive BTEX detection equipment and fast track training them to manually shut in a well. (I know of 4 auto shut in failures so far)
9) Simulate neighborhood evacuation plan and robo calling run through
10) Flood waters should be LAB tested for Drilling Mud, Frack Chemicals, Produced Water and Maintenance Chemicals before being released
11) Drill a Ground Water Woodbine Aquifer Monitoring Well with daily charting during stimulation
12) Baseline Air, Soil, and Surface Water testing should be required with post production re-testing to make comparison analysis
13) Nitro Lifts or any other well maintenance will NOT vent an open well or it’s chemical treatments to the atmosphere
14) Do not permit new wells which gives drillers Force Majeure until natural gas prices go up so as to not mismanage minerals by negatively affecting the first year of royalty payments due to the hyperbolic production decline curve which averages to be a 5% per month Barnett Shale decline rate.
15) Do not use any drilling waste to de-ice roads and mudfarming must be tested to be non-toxic.
16) Do not use onsite, raw, unprocessed, “production gas” to power onsite compressors or engines
17) Have back up dieseal generators for electric compressor stations so power loss will not affect individual drill sites like the emission events at two drill sites last April.
18) Have the drillers subscribe to the money savings presented by our very own UTA Melanie Sattler, Ph.D., P.E. Air Quality Consultatnt http://www.dallascityhall.com/pdf/GasDrilling/Sattler_DallasPresentation_083011.pdf
19) Use vapor recovery down the piping during frac stages
20) Replace high bleed pneumatics with low to no bleed pneumatics
21) Prohibit large, line gas fired compressors
22) Use blow out preventor between the drill and the frack stage in case flooding occurs.

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.

  2. Good thang Glorypark failed because yet another nasty gas well neighbor will permanently reside infront of the water tower within 2,500 feet of the Cowboy Stadium. How can you connect Downtown with the Entertainment District with a BTEX spewing, high impact, industrial gas mining factory at the corner of Collins and Divison? Well let’s thank Chesapeake for buying off those that did not want to be wihtin 600 feet of the well, then we can thank those out of town land owners who don’t care their properties are that close, next we can apologize to the 500 employees, workers and residents who signed a petition in the immediate area who opposed this site, lastly we have our bought off council members who allowed this to happen because those with the money got the vote and those breathing the air get the poison. Don’t forget to thank GM for their 562 tpy VOC’s, their 58 tpy of NOX and two gas well pad sites on their properties blowing to Hurrican Harbor and Six Flags and the Ranger Stadium. Ozone is Arlington.

    Somebody’s been doing their homework. I’m very impressed with these 14 common sense demands. It reads like a manifesto and damn sure ought to be. I would add a #15: Put council members under lock and key until they learn to put public health and the environment ahead of money. Thanks for the great job, Kim!
