Also, set up some monitoring apparatus in the parking area.

Since you write about your shinagins I guess you somehow care? Whad up?
Pipeline wrote:Yes, I do care. Call it a hobby, I'm not in the biz. Some people play golf, others work in the yard. I investigate gas wells as a hobby. I've trespassed on no less than 100 gas pads in the last seven years, measuring their foot print, sniffing for toxins, and listening to generators and compressors for noise. I see NG as the power generating fuel for the next 30 years. Out with coal. I'm fascinated by the technology.
Is Gas drilling and gathering safe? Could be better. But, from what I've seen, gas production is safer within city limits than without. The closer to a municipality the cleaner the sites, the less noise and diesel fumes. Out in the sticks, all bets are off. I've checked out every well pad within a mile or two of Lantana. No probs. I've been to Dish and smell nothing.
I do have mineral rights and there is the rub. Those who do not have them, get sick when they live near a pad site. Those with mineral rights do not. I have son living 250 feet from a gas pad, with his family and they have no issues. No skin lesions, no cancer clusters, etc., even having allergies and asthma. And the water wells are not contaminated.
Bartonville Water has a water well on Copper Canyon Rd. with seven gas wells within a quarter mile, and their water tests fine. Although the ABCAlliance insists that Bartonville water is contaminated. What drives me nuts is the fear. People with pre-existing conditions gotta blame something. If gas wells pollute and are a serious threat, show the science. I have my boots on the ground, and don't much tolerate accusations without proof on any subject.
Are gas wells an eyesore? Sure. But I would rather have one next door than a noisy neighbor. Fewer rooftops, the better.
