Let’s talk about Urban Relief Wells…is there room for them in a worst case scenerio?

Subject: Urban Relief well remedy Boots & Coots may use… Q on proximity needs & suggestion for advanced kill well placement

 Jim, I was reading the Drillingahead blog…can you find out if Boot & Coots has to come to an urban area for an outta control well if they plan on digging an relief/kill well “vertically parallel (alongside), not perpendicular” to the existing well. If so, then how close can they get because some setbacks in Arlington may not allow this remedy.  Those wells should be first on the list to be capped once they peter out in production…I would cap them now where relief/kill wells aren’t possible.

For those wells that do have the space for a relief well,  should those have the risk/reward scenero applied…you know can’t ask for the moon here..it would be more reasonable to ask for capped wells after they peter out if the relief well scenario is unreasonable in urban settings.

Can we have someone plot where each relief well would go for each gas well in Arlington so we get an idea of what added risks we have in that a structure may be in the way of where a relief well needs to go in the worst case scenario.
Also find out if they could use another nearby padsite  to reach the outta control well, and if we could have in place one well at each site designed just for Boot and Coots to use so that it is almost ready to go when they arrive?

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.
