TZIMs may teach O&G frackers to lose the Acid Washes?


Hey frackers don’t use TOXIC gel breakers or acid washes! See if you can use THERMALLY-DEGRADABLE ZONAL ISOLATION MATERIALS  (TZIMs) which per AltaRock’s TZIM technology  leaves no residue or well formation damage and “makes it possible to increase well value without the increased risk associated with drill rigs and mechanical packers”.


Back in 2014 a Forbes article about fracking (volcanoes) aka “heat mining enhanced geothermal systems (EGS)” reads… “EGS works by drilling a hole into the ground, and pumping water – with a biodegradable diverter, which enhances the fracture process – into a closed loop system to create fractures in the rock. Additional water is added (once the reservoir is saturated, very little water is lost in the closed loop) to absorb heat from the rock, which turns to steam at the surface and drives a turbine”.

It is my hope that the fossil fuel miners will catch some snap that digging for non-renewable energy is dangerous to below ground water resources in addition to our climate.

Now I volunteer for a company who wants to make water from air, but needs funding.

TRWD infoFRACKic: how to hide elephant in room AND why TCEQ air testing FAILS

TRWD does not post info on FRACKING WATER RISKS, YET DECEASED TWRD attorney’s brother said HE WAS ACTIVE HELPING THEM  drill on/near/under TRWD properties!twrd atty helped frackers yet not on websitelaterals-lake-arlingtonLake Arlington is prime example of fracking on/near/under drinking water sources… Now there is a fracker wanting to put a disposal injection well near Lake Arlington. #damrisk #waterContamRisk #thanksTWRD!

Did TRWD even know Lake Arlington was a flood zone-#frackaway they said?

twrd atty helped frackers yet not on website

No that is not a drill rig in the background-it’s a crane.

A search on TWRD website for fracking info yields “No results found”.

Pictures of Lake Arlington Flooding #SaveLakeArlington #StopBluestone

Here is the proposed location of the BlueStone Resources Injection Well where the red flag is. Note the lines under the lake, our drinking water source, is littered up with gas well laterals under the lake…the City of Ft Worth and Arlington promoted Urban Drilling and now the devil has come to collect their greed money in the form of human risk to our drinking water supplies. #karmaSux

Please attend stakeholder meeting Thursday, April 20 6-8pm at Handley Meadowbrook Community Center at 6201 Beaty St in Ft Worth TX.

Originally I went out there to see if the drill sites on the Ft Worth side that are too fracking close to the lake’s edge were flooding. Here is a Google earth image of the fence I took pictures of at the Wilbarger street entrance of the Quicksilver gate.

And here is the flooding pictures I took on Nov 28, 2015 of the Quicksilver entrance at Wilbarger….


Note tires wet



So the above pictures at the Quicksilver site (see the flooded white trailer?) had me thinking at least one or all of those drill sites on the Ft Worth side has flooded and is probably communicating with Lake Arlington? #ONLYaDRONEcanTELLus?

UPDATE: 4/22/2017

Per a KERA news report on a community meeting for this injection well location, Mary Kelleher (mentioned earlier in this blogpost), spoke of a TRWD protest letter and was quoted…..

“I just want y’all to know that our agency is totally opposed to this injection well,” Kelleher said.

My concern at that meeting that KERA recently reported on was about proximity and flooding as well as a history we’ve already had with the “then” Quicksilver padsite workover mishap when someone forgot to close the valve and overnight toxic waste waters went into Lake Arlington back in July of 2010… Want more info on how Lake Arlington has been fracked? Click below to take yer pick… (lots of Lake Arlington pics here)

    Why Prima Facie Trumping HB40 will Probably NOT be Challenged in McAllen Denied Gas Well Permit

    ……that’s a total of 100 million dollars of equitable tax that McAllen can see.”

    In a follow up story ValleyCentral wrote, “The well immediately attracted high-profile opposition. Former U.S. Rep. Ruben Hinojosa, McAllen Planning and Zoning Commission Chairman Leonel Garza III and attorney Ric Gonzalez — who represents several Hidalgo County cities — opposed the permit. Stefanie Herweck, who serves on the Lower Rio Grande Valley Sierra Club’s executive committee, also wrote a column for The Monitor  opposing the permit. 
    In response to questions from the City Engineer’s Office, the company stated the well would not involve fracking and the risk of any problems would be extremely low”.
    NOT  INVOLVE  FRACKING?  In Facebooking with Stefanie Herweck her response was, “And they reserve the right to frack–that’s in the permit, so what the operator says is irrelevant”.
    Frackers are so desperate they can lie to our faces? So why would the operators NOT challenge HB40? hb40

    HERES WHY>>>>>>>Stefanie Herweck, wrote in The Monitor, (I boldfaced for emphasis) “There are more than two dozen homes within 400 yards of the proposed drill site, with several homes even closer…..This particular North McAllen well site is designated as being in a hydrogen sulfide field.…..A blowout and explosion north of Karnes City burned a path a quarter-mile from the well. For 24 hours, oil, water, gas, and hundreds of thousands of pounds of chemicals and air pollutants spewed onto homes and farms. Because of the presence of hydrogen sulfide gas, an area within a 3-mile radius from the site was evacuated; some residents forced to stay away for a month…. a 3-mile evacuation zone could affect tens of thousands of people, as well as numerous schools, businesses and shopping centers…..McAllen’s oil and gas well ordinances have been on the books since 1933, and include a provision that allows the city commission to ‘refuse any application for a permit to drill any well at any particular location … for health reasons, or safety reasons … where the drilling of such well on such particular location might be injurious, or be a disadvantage to the city or to its inhabitants as a whole, or to a substantial number of its inhabitants.’ HB 40 does not tie the city commission’s hands”.
    ……….H2S has H9 reporting requirements and it is not something you take risks with that’s why!!!!!………
    Years ago, the first and only plug & abandon padsites was at the (then planned) Viridian in Arlington…an upscale area.
    So is it the upscale planned development tax money at risk or the H2S field that poses too high of a risk?
    One day in my dream world, fracking is banned because it is NOT COMPATIBLE WITH ALL NEIGHBORHOODS NO MATTER THEIR ECONOMIC STATUS OR H2S RISK.

    About those fracking three-eyed babies….

    Old habits die hard in trying to notify our city leaders about how risky fracking in our neighborhoods is….this blog has thousands of emails sent to them over the years of blogging full time.

    TEDX List of Potential Endocrine Disruptors Captures Chemicals Associated with Unconventional Oil and Gas

    The TEDX List now includes a use/source category that allows you to search for chemicals used during the process of unconventional oil and gas production and well development, as well as those measured in air, water and soil near those sites.
    Our team reviewed 110 such chemicals and identified 63 potential endocrine disruptors. In addition, 56 chemicals previously listed were updated to show that they are also associated with drilling, hydraulic fracturing, or other relevant processes. This brings the TEDX List to a total of 1,392 potential endocrine disruptors, 119 in the new category “Unconventional Oil and Gas”.
    The TEDX List is easy to use – click here to see the chemicals associated with unconventional oil and gas operations.
    TEDX is an non-profit organization dedicated to compiling and disseminating the scientific
    evidence on the health and environmental problems caused by low-level exposure to chemicals that
    interfere with development and function, called endocrine disruptors.

    Arlington Water Taste & Odor …Chicken or Egg?


    UTA Clear staff posted on their FB page ….“Does chemistry affect biology or does biology change chemistry? Our latest work around Texas is examining the groundwater microbiome to determine whether changes in groundwater quality are altering microbial communities or whether changes in microbial diversity are responsible for changes in water quality. More to follow, stay tuned folks

    Maybe it is that we have fracked so much in this area (fracking causes prolific bacterial growth (aka landfill odors emanating from drill sites’ storage tanks or well souring) that our little algae problem is getting a little…well NASTY!

    Attn. TX water drinkers – email now re HB1818

    Please email and/or call all members of the Texas Energy Resource Committee regarding the Texas Railroad Commission Sunset Bill HB1818 they will vote on Monday, March 6.

    Also call or email your local House representative.

    Ask them to strengthen HB1818 in four ways

    (1) Make enforcement and violation information available in a searchable form on the RRC website.

    (2) Increase bonding requirements to cover the expense of addressing the large backlog of abandoned wells.

    (3) Increase maximum fines from $10,000 to $25,000 per fine per day to deter offenders from repeat violations. The $25,000 amount is commensurate with penalties at the Attorney General of Texas.

    (4) Limit political contributions to the elected RRC Commissioners to the election season. Commissioners should be prevented from taking contributions from parties involved in contested case hearings while these cases are pending before them.

    Contact these committee members immediately. OK to leave phone message in evenings and weekends.
