May 18, 2017 there was a gas leak due to a contractor hitting a pipeline with digging equipment. While this happens often, with natural gas well production occurring within the city limits “and” also on campus…..
…….there needs to be another level of prevention as the risk for a chain event of explosions is worrisome.
The company that owns the UTA padsite has changed ownership for a total of THREE!
Originally it was Carrizo, then Enervest, and now it is owned by Saddle, so we are already having a third tier operator maintaining the padsites.
Additionally, with UTArlington being a state institution, our LOCAL GAS WELL INSPECTORS do not have purview to inspect that site.
I suggest any permits issued by the city are first worked by the gas well department who works with the RRC to identify pipelines and not leave that task to the digging company working on roads and new development.
