“Ivan Dubrasky’s shadow is cast on his Pulaski Township home from a flare a little over 500 feet away. A reflection of that flare can be seen in the window”.
How fracking ironic that this family can save on their electricity bill at night and light their home by flare!
Arlington Urban Drilling generally doesn’t allow flaring unless something is about to blow. At the Arlington Rolling Hills site years ago, someone reported to me how he saw a flare. And once I personally saw a flare at the Arlington GM plant’s padsite of gaswells. I guess we use to silently vent the methane instead of flaring before those EPA flaring rules went into effect.
In Arlington where green completions were not used and the pipelines were not in place and no flaring took place…they almost had to be invisibly venting that methane!!! The City of Arlington gasland TX never mandated green completion techneciques in our ordinance.
So Urban Drilling or Rural Drilling….ther WAS this choice to flare or not to flare…..it’s invisible anyway….but alas sometimes we HEARD IT…I’ve had reports of jet engine sounds and when investigated, Arlington city employees would say the operators said they were testing the pressure relief valves.
What follows are home pics from a Pennsylvania padsite precariously close to a HOME and BOY-YA…anything goes!!!….
“Ivan Dubrasky stands in front of his picture window in the living room of his four-generation family home in Pulaski Township, Lawrence County, Pa. while Hilcorp Energy flares a well 505 feet away. The light from the flare is so intense that it casts a shadow on the wall behind him. The Dubraskys own their mineral rights and did not lease them to Hilcorp”.
“Light from a flaring well illuminates a bedroom in the Dubrasky home in Pulaski Township, Lawrence County, Pa. The Dubraskys, who did not sign a gas lease and have a well pad 505 feet from the family’s four-generation home, challenged the township zoning ordinance and lost. The three-member zoning board and the board of supervisors who appointed them all hold gas leases with Hilcorp Energy“.
