We need to do soil tests for high chlorides and benzene along the pipelines in Ft Worth that lead to the evaporation (without scrubbers) station pilot program.
We also need to investigate if that polyethene? piping from 30? padsites have a protective internal coating or barrier so that benzene doesn’t permeate/diffuse through the pipes.
The evaporation of produced water (Chesapeake pilot program) is happening at the Arc park Brentwood Compressor/WastewaterInjectionWell/drillsite Station in Ft Worth…darn – the Railroad Commission doesn’t regulate those pipes either.
(update) I failed at getting the City of Ft Worth to respond to this concern and my request to have the soil tested in their produced water piping program.
I contacted Senator Davis and hopes she can jump in and help.
This link regarding leaks from plastic explains the nature of this lightweight hydrocarbon, “……..PROVEN human carcinogen, it is an escape artist. Benzene is the Houdini of hydrocarbons.”
