Subject: Day NINE in gas well spew 1.5 mile evacuation
“According to Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) spokeswoman Bethany McCorkle, crews lost control of the well Saturday and have not yet been able to stop the leak. Families were evacuated from homes within a 1.5-mile radius of the well near the Ohio River. “There’s still a steady stream of natural gas coming from the wellhead,” said McCorkle.
Texas-based Triad Hunter, which owns the drilling site, released a statement saying it had “experienced a loss of control of a well, the Stalder 3UH, located in Monroe County, Ohio. The previously drilled and completed Stalder 3UH well had been temporarily plugged and abandoned in preparation for the drilling of three additional Utica horizontal wells on the Stalder pad. However, despite numerous precautionary measures taken in connection with the temporary plugging and abandonment operation, the well began to flow uncontrollably while recommencing production operations. Triad Hunter personnel were removing the well’s night cap flange when a pressure disruption occurred. They attempted to bolt back down this equipment but were not able to safely do so prior to natural gas flowback.”
“Triad Hunter has contacted all necessary regulatory authorities and evacuated field personnel and the residents in the immediate area,” it continued. “Currently, all field personnel are accounted for, and no injuries have been reported. Only critical personnel remain at a command center near the well site to mitigate the incident. Wild Well Control of Houston, Texas has been mobilized and is currently on site preparing for well control operations. Additional details will be released as they become available.”
According to McCorkle, the well had been fracked and plugged a year ago.
“This whole situation is uncommon in general,” she said. “A full investigation will give us more information as to what happened, what led up to the incident and why there was so much pressure.”
That probably won’t be much comfort to the families and others living in the area of Ohio’s growing number of fracking operations.
“There have been other explosions and fires at fracking wells and drilling sites in Ohio,” theDispatch concluded blandly without providing further details.
Indeed there have—many of them reported in the Dispatch. In October, 400 homes were evacuated in Jefferson County, also on the Ohio River to the north of Monroe County, when a fracking operation there sprung a leak. McCorkle said the ODNR was investigating. In June, a fracking site in Clarington, also in Monroe County, caught fire, causing multiple explosions. That accident spilled large amounts of toxic chemicals into a nearby stream, killing fish and wildlife; the well operator company waited several days to disclose what chemicals had been released. The ODNR was investigating. That was days after another out-of-control gas leak in Bethel Township in Monroe County.
“The out of control natural gas leak at a fracking site in Monroe County demonstrates, once again, the lack of foresight on the part of Ohio Governor John Kasich, the Ohio legislature and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources on the issue of fracking,” said Alison Auciello, Ohio organizer for Food & Water Watch.
“The ODNR must have a short memory because they’re saying these types of accidents are ‘uncommon in general.’ Just this past summer residents in Monroe County were evacuated while the Eisenbarth well pad exploded,” said Auciello. “As the Monroe County leak continues to force evacuations, Governor Andrew Cuomo banned fracking in the state of New York today, citing health concerns from the New York Department of Health. How many accidents will it take for Governor Kasich take a nod from Governor Cuomo, pay attention to the science, listen to his constituents and realize that there is no such thing a safe fracking?”

Subject: XTO Walter Dueease is said to have posted FAKE PERMIT at Pappy Elkins

Here is a copy of the Facebook post…..
 Pappy Elkins Restoration Group added 4 new photos.
“XTO’s Walter Dueease Posted Fake Permit
The permit XTO received from the TCEQ expired in December 2010. When XTO fraced wells in Dec 2010 and Jan 2011 they didn‘t have a legitimate permit so they posted a fraudulent one (shown below) that had been issued by the Tarrant Regional Water District (“TRWD”) for a project in Fort Worth. Never mind the TRWD has no jurisdiction over Pappy Elkins Lake. XTO also knew that the city of DWG had no intention of inspecting their work at the DWG pad site. Mayor Tedder failed to have the inspector DWG hired and paid visit the pad site for over 4 years and tried to lay the blame on XTO during the May 2014 City Council Meeting. This is what happens when DWG leadership caters to XTO instead of the citizens who trusted them with their promise to not use Pappy Elkins Lake as a frac pond!”

Subject: video update on Day NINE in gas well spew 1.5 mile evacuation
 
Attached is a snap shot of the out of control well.
If there is one ounce of hope to have this happen during a packed ATT Stadium either by the GM or the Truman padsite….maybe our sacrifice would change how Urban Drilling is allowed?..yes I went there.
PS please tell Don Jakeway to let my email reach him as I now get rejection notices when I email him.

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.
