On Jan 31, 2013 our media failed to report that TCEQ & fire trucks were summoned numerous times to the Cowboy Stadium area to the Chesapeake Truman Drill site at 310 N Collins in Arlington TX. The Bobcat 1H well was in a workover phase? and was the hot spot for the odors and health effects claimed. One disptach was for medical assistance at the 500 block of Collins St. at the gasoline station, and another dispatch was for an odor complaint over 2 miles away on Harwell Dr.
I noted that Arlington Fire Department took 6 minutes to arrive.
It took our city Gas Well Coordinator, Jessica minley, 25 minutes to arrive.
The Chesapeake person arrived 34 minutes after they were summoned.
TCEQ arrived to air sample 1:20 minutes after they were called.
Jessica Minley is to be praised for calling TCEQ (she used to work there). I’d like to mention that our other city Gas Well Coordinator, Collin Gregory, failed to call TCEQ on the Carrizo Rice site emission events of last (April & May 2012) where on one of the calls, another firetruck was dispatched just to follow an almost 3 blocks wide, white cloud into a neighborhood….nope no cause to bother TCEQ, evacuate, or get suma air tests even though this site is across the street from Hutchinson Jr High. This site also backs up to a field near a daycare). So I called TCEQ who logged incident#169246 to show that Carrizo claimed losses to the atmosphere were ONLY 1,468 lbs and 1,559 lbs. No need to call the state or the Railroad Commission unless you go over the “5,000 lb RQ reportable quantity (100 lb rule for H2S) rule” -hint that RQ threshold was not set for urban drilling ya’ll.
Questions on this “Chesapeake Bobcat Stadium Spew” event ….
I left council an in depth health effects summary (including a rash report) of this odor event. During my conversation with the fireman, I was noticing my throat felt raw. Just after the exposure, a family member present when the odor permeated my home came down with a respiratory issue right after her exposure which we will never prove that this was the cause. I myself had chest pains (not the first time either recently during this workover phase) that came on when viewing these open records of the terror caused to my neighborhood. It took a “cry myself to sleep nap” and a few hours for the chest pains to go away. Yes the stress is getting to me, but it serves only to make me more determined now to shut down urban drilling period!
Above video was my visit to Arlington city hall where Chesapeake MSDS sheets were being viewed of what chemicals will be present by my home and the Cowboy Stadium either during drilling, workovers, maintenance, and flowback. This list does not include fracking chemicals. Some highlights are….
Napatha, Toluene, Benzene, Ethylbenzene, Hydrogen Sulfide.…ewe!
More to come on the suma test results in about 3 weeks-but don’t look for any revelations of chemicals or methane because the state suma canisters test for BTEX and effluents ending in xx-ane and xx-ene (but not methane, H2S, sulfer, or formaldehyde etc). Here is a list of what they usually test for…..

I had an interesting call back from our fireman who responded to me that they were pulling the casing, drilling through the plug, and putting a valve on the piping. He verified that the city does not own a Spectrometer to speciate on the spot what is in the air…gosh darn we have $80 million sitting in the Arlington Tomorrow Fund (ATF) that needs to have some funds spent TODAY on a FLIR camera to see invisible methane leaks AND a Gov. Perry approved Spectrometer.
Heres a raw video of who wants the blood money from the interest earned off of the ATF fund……
Please contact our local, state, and federal leaders to demand an end to urban drilling that unnecessarily risks public health.
jobs*jobs*jobs*jobs HEY $52K yr babysitting these storage tanks….this one at the UTA Carrizo site (that I monitor) of what you WON’T be seeing, but that you WILL be breathing. For example below is a video of Lake Arlington’s natural gas produced water storage tank battery. What you see is NOT tanks just emitting steam and water which is what misguided industry folk tell us.…
