Please wait as 45 seconds into the video the audio improves.
WHO: Video of Dale Henry, retired Petroleum Engineer, who (unsuccessfully) ran for Railroad Commissioner four times. If you live in Texas you’d know that democrats don’t fair “well” in Texas oil & gas political positions.
WHAT: He compares* the PSI & injection rates of fluids that occur both for injection wells and for hydraulic fracturing. Click here for TxSharon’s RRC map of Arlington laterals.
WHEN: He claims there is a resulting seismic response time frame of 18-30 months after we inject into mother earth. For Arlington, it was Sept 7 2014 for a 2.4 earthquake.
WHERE: Arlington Gasland TX 3.1 miles shallow**.
WHY: This manmade concentration of energy gets stored in mother earth and she responsively burps out via seismic “events”….aka Frackquake.
ANY (more) QUESTIONS***?
*Here are my notes that I took from the video…
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.
**Note a shallow quake can be caused by natural water table fluctuations due to drought and rainy seasons.
***ANY (more) QUESTIONS? Yes I do…..
1) So why are some epicenters of some of these earthquakes near injection wells as this appears to make injection wells (not fracking) the main cause of our manmade seismic events?…. I suspect (and please weigh in on this folks) that the energy stored either from nearby fracking or injection wells cause the fault lines to give way “first” at the areas with the most stress ….which is near those heavy ass injection sites full of fluid. There is a study that the older the injection well the more volume it contains and therefore the more intense the quakes. There is also a study that says that what happens “here” (where injecting is occurring) can affect fault lines way over “there” (like in areas not having injection activities).
2) Why do we continue to risk all our water, sewer, NG pipes and well casings to seismic events when renewable energy (and jobs) are just waiting to be tapped?
