Update as of 1/6/15 I asked to be included in the committee to update our Gas Drilling Ordinance and have NOT heard back and sent out another email today.
Update as of 1/16/2013 ….Chesapeake has drilled the last of the fourth permitted wells near the Cowboy Stadium. The last well to be fracked should be done using natural gas because that Best Available Control Technology (BACT) * exists.
Chesapeake’s failed response on 1/15/2013 reads…“Unfortunately, all the necessary infrastructure isn’t there just yet, and will not likely be in place by the time the next well at the stadium site is hydraulically fractured.”
T H I S I S N O T the answer Arlington breathers deserve !!!!!!!
Will the city invoke their gas drilling ordinance VII 7.01 A6? “… minimize,so far as practicable, dust, vibration or noxious odors, and shall be in accordance with the best accepted practices incident to drill for the production of gas and other hydrocarbon substances in urban areas. All equipment used shall be so constructed and operated so that vibrations, dust,odor or other harmful or annoying substances or effect will be minimized by the operations carried on at any drilling or production site or from anything incident thereto, to the injury or annoyance of persons living in the vicinity;….Proven technological improvements in industry standards of drilling and production in this area shall be adopted as they become available if capable of reducing factors of dust,vibration and odor……”
*technology to frack using natural gas info is here ….
Another example of Chesapeake NOT drilling responsibly in urban areas is their “Feil-Fail-RESPONSE”** below as to why they will not use Urban Flowback tanks.
Back in August of 2012, I had zero response for Senator Davis’ staff to file for an Attorney General’s opinion in getting the city to enforce their ordinance to enforce emission mitigation controls during flowback to use pressurized, ventless flowback tanks that is appropriate for flowback operations in urban areas so as not to use the traditional, OPEN HATCH “industry standard” ones as the red tank is pictured below .
** Below Chesapeake does NOT address my request to use CLOSED FLOWBACK TANKS near my family….this is Ms Wilson’s way of NOT answering me ….

We choose not to respond to inquiries that are clearly rhetorical, inflammatory, previously addressed, or accusatory in nature. We have every confidence in the degreed, experienced professionals in our industry, both inside our company and in the cities and regulatory agencies who monitor our activities. When our attempts to share information with you are ridiculed and vilified, we don’t see the point in continuing those efforts. We understand that you disapprove of our industry and our operations, and since no amount of credible science will change your position, there is no point in engaging in argument about it.
—I NEED HELP!—it seems the FBI does not investigate industrial environmental terrorists that I believe Chesapeake is guilty of in not using BACT in densely populated areas. Love letters continue for you to read and this extensive database is proof of how long I have been asking for this….
