Got H2S ? Got H-9 reporting?… only if in a known sour field…NUTHN’ 4 man-made H2S on soured gas wells

UPDATE a year ago to the day: Guess you can die of car battery H2S exposure too!


end update—–

Someone was wanting to know what areas had the highest Hydrogen Sulfide content …

Do you trust the RRC? Here you go…find your RRC reporting district here and then this is their “reporting” link…..Hint….if your county like Tarrant of the Barnett Shale-who is said to NOT be in a sour gas field doesn’t show up on this list and therefore not mandated to turn in H-9 H2S reporting documents…

If you don’t have to turn in an H-9 doesn’t that mean H2S doesn’t exist?

Would you bet yer life on it?

Some of us don’t have a choice to even make that bet. I’ve smelled the rotten egg odor when the Chesapeake rig was up at General Motors. I know first hand that sulfur smell; I use to work in Noro LA. My nose knows an industrial smell….guess what…did you know when you have H2S so high in concentration that your nose can NOT detect it… BAM you’re dead!  Actually here is the threshold details from the RRC…

Now up to 10 PPM is supposedly safe for 8 hrs exposure says the RRC …BUT!>>>>

What about the long term exposure?

Does our firemen’s H2S equipment detect less than 1ppm?

Now look at this OSHA 2007 chart….

One thing I noticed (about Chesapeake) is that in two instances at two different drill sites an odor overtook the area and sickened people in Arlington and the excuse was “stale water”….I relate stale water to the risk of a man-made soured well in leaving frack water down there too long waiting to do green completions or waiting for crews to be available or whatever excuse they have for not flowing back right away.

Our RRC statewide rule 36 doesn’t provide for mandating a well be flowed back right away…it damn well should if they are gonna frack in urban areas!

Then there is the DOWNWINDERS effect…….our winds predominantly come from the southeast and blow to the northwest…and maybe that explains what Arlington folks were smelling a couple of weeks ago?

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.
