Dale Henry on PSI & bbl/minute fracking vs injection wells in frackquakes

The wind noise dies down in the first 45 seconds, thanks for your patience with this impromptu vid…I bet he never noticed I turned on my camera.

Retired Petroleum Engineer from Lampasas TX, Dale Henry, comments on all the media attention being incorrectly on injection wells verses the aggregate build out of all the numerous hydro fracturing (fracking) with its unconventional high PSI and barrels per minute. Contrast the insane number of gas wells with the number of injection wells, and all that energy has to burp somewhere, sometimes.

Here are my notes that I took…
barrels per minute of injection wells = 2-3 bbl verses
barrels per minute during fracking = about 200 bbls
PSI for injection wells = 1,000-3,000 PSI verses
PSI during fracking = 10,000-20,000 PSI.
Time frame of energy storage before seismicity = 18-30 months or less.

So why are some epicenters of some of these earthquakes near injection wells? It could be coincidence…since I’m stastically inclined to analyze things I doubt it. So when the energy from hydrofracking gets stored up that Dale speaks about that then needs to “burp every so often”,  I believe that the faults with the most stress give way/slip first ….which is near those heavy ass injection sites.

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.
