Insidious Sulfolane contamination has a new face

What a faker serious look on an Arlington councilwoman’s face (which is insidiously deceiving)….sarcastically I ask why reject three more laterals under our drinking water source when there is already over 100 laterals down there? And… like an infrared camera is not needed in an Urban Driling town?


Last year in Michigan they thought that the demolition of the gas plant was the end of that odorous nuisance, but Sulfolane (used to purify sour gas) was left behind in the soil & groundwater on the site.

Per “… an acid injection site in Edson, Alberta is likely involved in the widespread contamination of drinking water wells with sulfolane, …”

This recent report at shows that oil & gas companies in Alberta are getting notices to report on Sulfolane use and how to look for its insidious contamination.

Per Ridgeline, “Sulfolane is a persistent contaminant in groundwater and is presumed not to breakdown easily in low oxygen/low nutrient environments. Sulfolane moves with groundwater and because it is slightly heavier than water it will migrate downwards, often to bedrock”.

Natural gas just leeps getting nastier by the knowing.

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.
