The technolgy is available to take “field natural gas” and make it the feedstock to run the engines on to replace nasty DIESEL during the fracking stage.…well it’s about fracking time! Funny this is only now “feasible” once the drillers recognize its cheaper to use “abundant natual gas” – which should also help with the gas glut issue too!! Now to make sure this gets implimented right away for my family’s, and my neighborhood’s, and MY ENTERTAINMENT DISTRICT’S SAKE! But alas here is Chesapeake’s response…

Subject: RE: Julie, need your help in asking your contractor for Truman site near Cowboy Stadium to use natural gas frack technology-less visible diesel plumes-
We would love for everything to run on natural gas … drilling rigs, fracturing crews, 18-wheelers, cherry-pickers, tractors, bulldozers, mail trucks, lawnmowers and, yes, kitchen stoves. And we’re working hard toward that end! 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. It isn’t on the schedule yet, so I can’t tell you the timeframe, but I know you keep a close eye on our AskChesapeake Neighborhood Center. When we get it scheduled, we’ll post it there.
Thanks for your interest and ongoing concern for the environment. Have a good day.
Here is a link with more info on using natural gas as fuel to frack with….
Below is more City of Arlington drama in my attempts to get my family away from the intensive drilling/fracking/flowback and workover phases…but to do that, I need to know “when” so I can check the “wind’s direction”, but the communciation piece with the city and Chesapeake is in FAIL mode so far…..
W A R N I N G : A RESPIRATOR IS ADVISED IF YOU PLAN TO SIT AT THE RED LIGHT AT THE INTERSECTION OF DIVISION AND COLLINS OR AT THE INTERSECTION OF ABRAM AND COLLINS BECAUSE FLOWBACK IS HAPPENING AS I TYPE THIS AND THE WINDS ARE OUT OF THE NORTH! Tomorrow, 12/5, the winds will change and I will need to leave the area while they finish up flowing back the last well by the Cowboy Stadium.
Update…I was told by Jim Parajon http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E6cSg0Fi0jk that flowback on the last well was to start instead on Dec 6, 2012, but periodic checks driving on Collins shows no activity….I’m still in the dark and my Chesapeake contact will not return my calls, and still I watch the winds…just in case they do flowback.
Urban drilling = fail on notification of high activity, high pollution times for those that are aware they should be watching the winds and remove themselves from harms way.
I learned that flowback on the first two Cowboy Stadium gas wells happened Oct 17, 18 and 19th-I wasn’t notified, and the city website was NOT updated I was livid when I found out and happened to be recording when I learned of this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aKN_PvNFWW0
On Friday, 10/19/2012, Joe Bruner and Lindy, from the Arlington Downtown Farmers Market, are witnesses to the odors and my complaints of odors from 8 am to 1pm on Friday, October 19th, which was my last day to volunteer there due to the rig being up when I got home-I was furious and told Joe that I was not working Saturday because of the presence of the (workover) rig. So I’m not even sure if they flowed back on the dates I was given due to the presence of a workover rig.
I specifically asked and was promised a heads up on when the flowback would be occurring. Collin Greggory verified that ventless, urban flowback tanks were NOT used…I have a call in to Senator Davis’ office. (UPDATE-no response there)
Whoever thought Urban Drilling was safe did not research where toxicology meets endocrinology. In studying the effects of BPA’s and Atrazine, it has been found that health effects can be significant in low doses that are “legal” per old school Effect Screening Levels (ESL) standards.
Our Arlington TX fire dept. looks at parts per million to make sure we don’t blow up.
The state and feds look at parts per billion to see if (antiquated) Effect Screening Levels were violated.
Who is looking at PARTS PER TRILLION?
We do not have to wait decades to protect citizens like we did to get the truth with the cigarette industry…..DEMAND NEW LAWS THIS LEGLISLATIVE SESSION TO PROHIBIT URBAN DRILLING….or at least mandate the use of the Best Emission Control Technologies!
