Subject: bacterial induced H2S flowback…RRC needs to mandate flowback immediately after frac
The flowback water at the Lynn Smith drillsite at Bowen and Division stayed down there for 2.5 months. No wonder it was “stale”…it had to be full of bacteria? and the health effect of H2S from bacteria production is a plausible explanation for the “immediate disorientation” “can’t breathe”…”no words to describe the horrible, horrible odor”, “vomited”, EMS noted -“high systolic 170 pressure reading” health effects that Mrs. Jean Stephens attests to last Saturday.
The Barron drill site also held frac fluids from frac stage one and two on a couple of wells if I remember correctly.
The RRC controls the drop dead dates that each gas production phase has to occur by…they need to demand that flow back occurs right after fracking.
I just left a message for Jim Parajon to verify if city treated water was used to frac the Lynn Smith well, or if they brought in the water from another source like the Chesapeake violation found at the Baron site…
Also note that damage can occur to the formation……”Surface water, almost without exception, contains large populations of microorganisms, such as sulfate-reducing bacteria (SRBs) and acid-producing bacteria (APBs). So when a production company hires a service company to hydraulically frac a well, it is setting into motion a process that potentially holds both risk and reward. Hydraulic fracturing can open new parts of the reservoir for production; but it simultaneously injects microbes into fractured zones that can become established and cause serious problems, including formation damage, biogenic hydrogen sulfide (H2S), microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC), and low-quality flowback water. Chemical companies exist to nullify these situations.”
“Bacteria are the arch-nemeses of hydraulically fractured wells, because water is the main ingredient in the fluids injected into oil and gas reservoirs during frac treatments.”
“…leading oilfield chemists have learned through exhaustive research and countless field applications over many decades: how virulent a bacterium can be if it finds a nutrient-rich environment and is left to reproduce unchecked. The implications of this latter point are significant, especially for companies using hydraulic fracturing technology in combination with advanced horizontal drilling…”
“A liquid scale inhibitor is introduced at surface into the acid for a frac procedure;
the corrosion inhibitor is introduced into the linear gel flush solution to be injected following the acid stage;
and a registered biocide is introduced in the fresh water prior to the gel chemicals being added.”
“…Once introduced into the reservoir, extremely small amounts of inhibitor and biocide are produced back to the surface throughout the flowback period, until the well is placed on production.”
“After the fracing process is complete, highly-trained field technicians must monitor biocide levels in flowback fluids, gather and culture bacteria for enumeration studies, and adjust future treatment parameters based on empirical indicators. Close monitoring optimizes the effectiveness of biocide treatments, which helps sustain production by reducing safety and environmental risks, chemical consumption and operating costs.”
So my questions now are
1) Did they use municipal water back in December to frack with? Can we see the water bill?
2) If the water stays down there that long, does the biocide have an expiration date of effectiveness?
3) Can someone ask Chk for their frac water analysis results? does NOT respond to my emails.
Here is a string of related emails to flow back…..
Based on the TX frack chemical disclosure rules, Texas Sharon told me…”the TX disclosure rule that says they do not have to disclose anything that was not added intentionally”….so the naturally occuring bacteria (that the biocides fail to kill) do not need to be reported. NORM or other natural things like bacteria that are disturbed or start growing down there are NOT required to be reported, yet the health risks of their presence is not disclosed.
There needs to be disclosure of the “organic effluents in flowback”.

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.

  1. Dear friends,

    Please check out the referenced article called FRACKING INSANE at Non-commercial website. 

    I’m the writer, but it’s not about me. Please take the time to read it through, as it’s got a lot of info all the way till the end, that maybe even you, who know a lot more than me, might not know yet. Also, I tried to make it understandable for the common person. Two good videos included. It’s not short, but only 6 pages long, as short as I could make it and tell the whole story. 

    Please feel free to use it any way you like, but if you could reference or link to our site, that’s all we ask. 

    Thanks for your time, if you really do read it through.
