LESS toxic Frack Sand 4 low temp flowback AND public safety

NOW I know WHERE some or most of this phenol is coming from…the fracking frac sand is coated with phenol resins!

This video is what I stumbled upon when trying to view an average temperature of flowback fluids (in our neighborhoods) to see if heavy metals could be volatilizing in our airshed. The video shows 90 degree Fahrenheit temp with only water (NOT SAND & WATER) being flowed back. The goal is to keep the sand/proppant in the formation.

This next Garnet frack sand video speaks about not having to use activator chemicals like phenol (a metabolite of Benzene) and formaldehyde… (BTW we don’t screen for formaldehyde in our drinking water tests).

Since FracFocus.com chemical disclosure registry admits that proprietary fracking ingredients/concoctions ARE NOT fully disclosed, we have to assume they are using the most economical (and toxic) concoctions not regulated by law.

I have blogged about how much Phenol has been injected into the earth as produced water waste (92 million lbs in 2011 in Texas)….NOW I know WHERE some or most of this phenol is coming from…the fracking frac sand is coated with phenol resins!

Upstreampumping.com says of the traditional coated frack sand….

Phenolic-Resin-Coated Sand…“Most resin-coated sands used in hydraulic fracturing are based on phenolic resin. …The environment of the well is probably the harshest and few chemistries and technologies can hold up to an environment that is hot, wet and high pressure. Unfortunately, phenolic-resin-coated sand could leach harmful chemicals that could potentially reach the water aquifer and contaminate water relied upon by so many people if the protective casing is damaged. Phenolic resin leaches formaldehyde and phenols. Many industries have already banned formaldehyde because this is known carcinogen. Phenol is a known mutagen, which can cause birth defects. Many industries are required to test products for these harmful compounds to ensure the safety of people”.

It was troubling to learn that cornerstone to plastics is the phenol/formaldehyde combo..here is a link to the history on plastics….“On July 13, 1907, Baekeland filed his “heat and pressure” patent related to the processing of phenol formaldehyde resins and identified their unique utility in a plethora of applications.”

It is interesting to note one TexasSharon blog account of Barnett Shale water contamination where a gag order/nondisclosure was signed related to a case of plastic pieces being found in the home owners water supply once the foamy water was lit.

So we have YET another request for our city to OUTLAW frac sand coatings with phenols and formaldehyde cause that frac sand flys back up (after being contaminated with NORM down there) and goes airborne into our airshed and can also get into water supplies.

For the Chesapeake Bobcat 1H gaswell by my house, FracFocus showed they used the Trican EnCap HP Breaker containing frac sand, Ammonium Persulfate, and….wait for it….TRADE SECRET in their Proprietary Cured Acrylic Resin.  Now Acrylic in itself is a petroleum based product and so I say beware of any proppants that are acrylic or phenolic treated/cured.

Per Fritz Industries, EnCap-HP is designed for use in 140 – 225°F higher temp fracturing fluids. So right there tells us that Chesapeake used  the higher temp proppant and NOT the Garnet brand lower temp (90 degree Fahrenheit) mentioned above.

Must we simpleton-house-wifeys tell the frackers how to do their job to poison us less?……… Y E S!

I can relate to the nosebleeds…read the article…this has been happening for some time and may take months to finish the relief well.

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.
