Chris Faulkner – Tried to help but Chesapeake didn’t respond

BREITLING ENERGY fails again as The Guardian reported.. “The Advertising Standards Authority has ruled that a US energy company misled the public when it made unsubstantiated claims about the benefits of fracking and claimed a gas shortage put the UK close to catastrophe.”

Back in 2012 I contacted Breitling Oil & Gas CEO/Chairman, Chris Faulkner, who never followed up on a promise to help me talk to someone high up in Chesapeake Energy actually “DID” responded stating he would ask Cheasapeake on my behalf (I was wanting them to use CLOSED, pressurized, ventless, flowback tanks in my neighborhood). He initially responded…

“I received your email. I have shared it with a close friend at CHK and she will be addressing this. Except a reply. 

I  will work hard for you.”

I bet the “close friend at Chesapeake” was Julie Wilson..pssft…

Six months later, he stopped responding.

Earlier in his career, Mr Faulkner was doing something non-fossil fool related, but has a history of

 “..broke promises about how often sites it hosted would be operational and

how often data would be backed up, among other things.”

Somehow broken promises has a great fit in the gas mafia as Mr Faulkner is now a known name in the industry with their endless KRLD ads….oooh what money can buy!

Later Breitling Oil & Gas changed their name. They never responded on FB as to why they did that. In this statement, which is as clear as mud, the original business plan was shifted to “Crude Energy LLC” …lovely name.

Around the time of the name change I complained on their Facebook about this one pose where his pretty, female clerks were seated while he stood in all of his glorious “manly authority” …Screen shot 2014-09-03 at 2.35.31 PM   in an

insanely plush office…Screen shot 2014-09-03 at 2.40.28 PM    all safe and secure away from …

Screen shot 2014-09-03 at 2.39.47 PM   harmless flowback “steam”…yeah right

(Not sure if this pic shows the frac pool to be holding fresh water or if thats flowback water-either way its permanently fracked water)

Back to My Broken Promise story….

Here are my emails from Chris for the record… I guess he really only just has money and….no power. He even said that he

“sat on the board with some folks from CHK”.

I really trusted he could help us…help my family to be protected from Chesapeake’s short cuts$$ in using old school open hatch flowback tanks when they should be using closed ones.

Update…we have been living within a mile of about 100 wells and within 1/2 mile of the Cowboy Stadium Chesapeake drill site….my husband now has cancer and my teen may have a brain tumor-he had to be retested as his VMA level was double the norm.

Did you ever get in touch with Chesapeake to ask them on my behalf to flowback into closed, pressurized flowback tanks?

Brian, please contact the company that will be doing the flowback and ask them to use the pressurized, ventless flowback tanks for the Cowboy Stadium/Truman drill site.
Using the old school (rural) open hatch flowback tanks is unacceptable for urban drilling. Even though Chesapeake plans to use Green Completions equipment after the pipeline is in, it is risky to our air quality from the time of the onset of flowback, until the gas is saleable that hydrocarbons are allowed to vent to the atmosphere in my neighborhood and near my family…this is urban drilling and Chesapeake needs to set better standards for the early flowback phase.
Please let me know if you have any questions…the TCEQ cannot help me.  I have a petition that might explain this a different way….

Chris if U R reading this…I’m still waiting and think you still can help…will you help by convincing the industry thats its the right thing to do to adopt urban flowback tanks in all areas that flowback occurs?

Here is a copy of the sample letter I sent that any reader here can also send…..
Dear KERA, KRLD AM 1080 and CBS/DFW

Subject: lesson from UK in Banning Breitling Energy from false advertisments

Please rethink and research ads from the fossil fuel industry…they are getting desperate in seeing their business models be phased out for renewables.

Here are two recent media events you need to be aware of…

I remain dedicated to the truth in what natural gas is leading us to…extinction…there is a reason I do this full time w/o pay…
I am a mother, a wife, a daughter, a musician (who no longer plays cause this takes all my time/energy)…lastly I (like you) am a citizen of this biosphere.

If the KRLD am 1080 and CBS/DFW mission statement includes protecting such citizens…then you will refuse and at least research the veracity of your energy customers advertising on your stations, thank you.

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.
