Merry oil spill X-mas Lake Texoma / Hagerman (hell) Refuge

Lets learn about flow lines …that piping that is aged and aging….

….in relating to spillage/leakages of brine, oil, or natural gas….

energy.about says …“Flowlines connect to a single wellhead in a producing field. Flowlines move natural gas from the wellhead to nearby storage tanks, transmission compressor stations, or processing plant booster stations”.

Per RSOE event reporting…..A family visiting animals at Hagerman National Wildlife Refugee on Christmas Day found a fracking related oil leak in Lake Texoma…..Merry Fracking X-mas!

“And we had came into one of the roads that had some of the oil rigs on it and noticed a little bit of rainbow color in the water,” Ulch said. “We went around there and took a look at it and realized that it actually some oil coming out into the water.” Ulch contacted the Grayson County Sheriff’s Office who contacted the oil company representative. They got to Hagerman within 15 minutes. “It was caused by a pipeline leak, specifically a fall line from a well,” said Mary Maddux, a Regional Gas and Oil Specialist with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Maddux says Jetta Operating Company, the operator of the well, fully responded and placed absorbent booms to contain the affected area. “It did get into the lake,” Maddux said. “It’s in the cove, in between two pads there on Lake Texoma.” Maddux says they aren’t sure how much oil leaked”.

USFWS….”Most of these flowlines were installed 40 to 50 years ago. Pipe failures and small leaks are not uncommon due to the corrosive nature of the brine. Since 1973, refuge staff have documented 13 brine spills ranging in volume spilled from less than a barrel (42 gallons) to 3,500 barrels. Flowline leaks due to corrosion are the cause of most brine spills at the refuge”.

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.
