This is  WIP work in progress-feel free to let me know which ones I missed- still trying to put this in chronological order and condense it more…I’m an Arlington TX blogger, but I’m from Louisiana and always planned to retire/return there if its liveable…#ontrack2notBliveable.

Here is a link to a Converse LA frack pump blow out with pictures.

CADDO PARISH, LA (KSLA) –

“Highway 1 in south Caddo Parish is back open after a well control issue shut it down early Thursday morning…Deputies say they received a call from Chesapeake at around 2:30 a.m. Thursday. Caddo Parish Sheriff Steve Prator held press conference, in which he said a large amount of salt water is boiling out the bottom of the well.

“A major crude oil spill discovered near here Monday that stopped just shy of Caddo Lake has already killed dozens of fish and some reptiles and will keep cleanup crews and regulatory agencies on site likely for months to come.… estimated 4,000 barrels of crude oil had flowed into Tete Bayou when control operators noticed a drop in pressure around 8 a.m. Monday. The line, stretching 1,000 miles from Longview, Texas, to major oil refineries in Ohio and Michigan, was shut down within 20 minutes,…immediate efforts to stop if from getting into Caddo Lake.”

Tainted Water Spurs Evacuations

“Hundreds of people living near a natural-gas drilling site in northwest Louisiana have been forced to evacuate their homes after gas seeped into their drinking water.

Authorities in Caddo Parish evacuated at least 135 homes just south of Shreveport on Monday and Tuesday after a well being drilled nearby began spewing gas into the air and tests showed gas in local drinking water. Those who left can’t return until Wednesday at the earliest, authorities said.”

 


 


Then there is the 2009 Caddo Parish dead cattle story….

Louisiana – Interstate 20 shut down because of pipeline fire

ksla.com ^ | December 14, 2007

Posted on 12/14/2007, 5:57:17 PM by HAL9000

Excerpt –

“DELHI, La. (AP) – Interstate 20, a major east-west route across north Louisiana was shut down Friday afternoon after a nearby oil pipeline erupted in flames.Sgt. Markus Smith of the Louisiana State police says the explosion happened about 1 pm.

Details were sketchy, but Smith says the pipeline was burning just east of Delhi, a small town about 200 miles northwest of New Orleans. The dispatcher for the Richland Parish Sheriff’s Department, who would not give his name, says the oil line is about 50 yards from the interstate. He says the four-mile stretch from Delhi to the Waverly exit will be closed in both directions indefinitely.

This is the second time in weeks an interstate highway has been shut down because of an oil line fire.”


Nov 2007 Interstate 10 burned from a well blow out..

http://www.wafb.com/story/7371539/transportation-leaders-say-i-10-possibly-closed-through-december-4th

“State police say the well blowout is about 75 yards from the interstate and the fire is still burning at around 2000 degrees F. There is the possibility of a bridge-over, meaning an above or underground collapse could extinguish the fire. The fire is controlling the release of natural gas at this point, but if the fire goes out, the natural gas will be released in the air around the area, which includes the interstate. This form of free natural gas is VERY volatile and can be ignited by static electricity or other sources, causing a flash explosion. Until the well head is capped, this will be an on-going hazard.”

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.
