Truck Fracking Traffic Defined near the Cowboy Stadium Gas Well in Arlington TX

update…Prior to the vote Council denied an application to add two more residents to an in home caregiving arrangement which met all state and local building code laws…..their double standard in very obvious as they approved all drilling agenda items tonight as usual.

Subject: Truman additional well vote tonight-Collins & Division 

A UT Austin research paper called “Evaluating the Impact of Natural Gas Developments on Highways: A Texas Case Study” http://docs.trb.org/prp/12-0800.pdf reports that  approx 214 truck loads of flowback per well have to be driven to a Class II injection well site.  With the existing three Cowboy Stadium/Truman Wells, we have an opportunity to wait and see in early January what the truck traffic will be like over a flowback period of 3-4 weeks (and some 650 trucks later) before deciding on anymore wells near our cash cow venues and Downtown area. That the industry compares the preproduction activity of gas mining to a construction site is an insult to those near these high impact, risky operations.

What about the daily truck traffic to evacuate the brine water water from the storage tanks for the life of the wells (which the report states is about 20 years)? This report states that each well head generates approx. 4,200 gallons of brine water per day which is roughly one truckload per day. The street crew that currently stops traffic with flags and waves in those trucks coming north on Collins to make that left hand turn won’t always be there …will they? Do we want to add a fourth, daily, evacuation truck to come and go at the corner of Collins and Division for the next 20 years?

 

And what about the road damage to Collins? Never mind that the state needs to take care of 360 and Division and if they don’t have the funds or run behind schedule, then “we” have to put up with those roads until the state can get to them. Per this report, the traffic involved in rig set up and take down is about 20 oversized and overweight trucks

in total per well. Then you need to account for the rock haulers, frac sand, and chemical trucks too. The overall reduction of the service life of the roads is 5.6% less because of the rig traffic, 30% less road life due to oversized construction traffic, and 16% less road service life because of saltwater disposal traffic.

 

We may not be able to control truck traffic during flowback around game times, lunch/rush hour and weekends, and there is a real possibility for extreme odors from 3 months worth of stale, festering, flowback fluids volitizing in the airshed that may become a national news item.

Plus it wouldn’t hurt to wait to drill anymore wells until the price of NG goes back up so the minerals are indirectly managed by our City Council and not Chesapeake who may have some loans tied to Volumetric Production Payment Contracts (quotas to maintain) and can be purposely overdeveloping wells which could be shorting us royalties. 

I have a video on that topic…http://energypolicyforum.com/?p=242
Deborah Rogers, Ft Worth economist, said “The court documents claim that Chesapeake has been overproducing wells in order to meet production targets for these banks. Overproducing shale wells is known to be potentially detrimental to the overall EUR’s (Estimated Ultimate Recovery) of the wells which raises the question as to whether this is prudent management with regard to mineral owners and their interests which Chesapeake has an obligation to uphold.” http://energypolicyforum.com/?p=345
Please wait and table this until the other three wells are in production so you are better informed of the real impact at this high profile drill site.

Subject: Mud Farming behind Sequin High School?

Hi Jessica, at 1051 Mansfield Webb Rd drill site called “Mansfield Wells”, there is an application of some type. What is the best way to request this for an open records request in finding out if this consists of drilling mud?

Subject: FLIR camera / general “why by” statement from FLIR for predictive maintenance

For the first reading vote last week, I’d like to thank Councilwoman Capehart for asking for more information on the flexibility of the FLIR camera’s applications for other departments to use prior to tomorrow night’s final vote.
 
Here are a few statements on the device……
“Nearly everything that uses or transmits power gets hot before it fails. Cost effective power management is critical to maintaining the reliability of your electrical and mechanical systems.”
 
“Finding and fixing a poor electrical connection before a component fails can save you the much greater costs associated with manufacturing downtime, production losses, power outages, fires and catastrophic failures”
 
“FLIR’s infrared cameras and software not only quickly locate problems, their non-contact precision temperature measurement and analysis capabilities instantly deliver the answers you need to understand what repair action to take, and when.”

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.
