update another reason…OMG>>>thanks EnergyPolicyForum for this info.. “International Energy Administration, it takes approximately 2500 Bakken shale wells per year to produce 1 million barrels of crude per day whereas only 60 Iraqi wells are needed to produce an equal amount.”
This is yet another one of my Work In Progress projects (WIP aka WTF).
1) The Chesapeake/NOMAC drilling related fuel tank can hold 14,000 gallons of explosive & carcinogenic fuel .
2) The accidental “reportable” quantity (RQ) release amounts were written during the era of drilling in remote areas. For Ex. 10 gallons of pure Benzene, 100 lbs of Formaldehyde & 5,000 lbs of Methanol has to be “spilled” before they must call the Railroad Commission to investigate. Click here for more on RQ. Related is that we also have MSD’s in Arlington . Click here to enter an address of interest of an MSD area in Arlington.
Here is an example of a non-reportable quantity event…
4) Arlington’s “protected uses” for a 600 foot set back consideration does not include businesses, campgrounds, hotels and motels. Just north of the above video at California and Cooper St is a KOA Campground where some residents live 300 feet close to the well heads. The gasoline pumps are 400 feet away.
5) Arlington Gas Well Inspectors do not inspect the UTA Enervest site, nor do they inspect any of the Compressor Stations or Bumper Stations.
update number SIX
6) then there is the frack on crack thang…..
I’ll keep adding to this list if you contact me with obscure, COLLOID – like little known facts-thanks.
If they HAVE to frack by people, animals, & produce they need to use….
1) electric rigs, & engines
2) rot proof cement and rust proof steel for the casing (must be seismic proof too)
3) radioactive free isotopes to see if they reached their frack zone
4) uranium free/non toxic explosives in perf guns to bomb holes in the casing
5) silica dust catchers (no trespass allowed during fracking)
6) non toxic fracking chemicals and re-usable water (not single use water!)
7) pressurized, closed flowback tanks
8) vapor recovery units on storage tanks
9) 12-18 month timeframe to shut in the well after it peters out-no lift compression
10) LNG or CNG vehicles..NO DIESEL in the air or in the drilling mud.
As usual here is a letter from this morning (I post most of them for ease of Open Records)… to a Michael McCullough who wrote “My degrees are in chemistry and chemical engineering and I spent decades in the environmental industry, both as a consultant and in-house head of environmental affairs.”

What do you think about the new findings where flowback was studied and found that the re-used flowback became anthropogenicly toxic by introducing bleach related chemicals that react with the bacteria?
The study appeared this week in the Royal Society of Chemistry journal Environmental Science: Processes and Impacts….
“However, the presence of various fatty acid phthalate esters in the Barnett and Marcellus produced waters can be related to their use in drilling fluids and breaker additives rather than their presence in connate fluids. Halogen containing compounds are found in each of the water samples, and although the fluorocarbon compounds identified are used as tracers, the presence of chlorocarbons and organobromides formed as a consequence of using chlorine containing oxidants (to remove bacteria from source water), suggests that industry should concentrate on non-chemical treatments offrac and produced waters.”
Also what do you think about Urban Drillers using pressurized flowback tanks?…they currently use those rural style open hatch ones and NIOSH recently found those workers have illegal amts of Benzene exposures….
Have you heard about the COLLOIDS flowback spill frack on crack risk too?
Thanks for your attention to these concerns of an unhappy gas well neighbor near the ATT Cowboy’s Stadium.
