Oh oh...what happens when you can't blame fracking anymore?
« on: September 16, 2014, 11:28:36 AM »
As some have mentioned in the past... :icon_sunny:......the primary method by which produced fluids, frack, fluids, any fluidsreally , can get into a stratigraphically higher rock unit, or to the surface, is the man made vertical pipeline. To those who drill them, it is called a well. When a drilling process, well design, or cementing procedure is inadequate, bad things can happen.

Like this:



While always exciting....to those who live anyway....a large sum of money is paid to those professionals who can drill wells while AVOIDING these particular "bad" things. Puts hair on your chest, gives you a certain swagger, makes you an arrogant prick maybe even. :icon_sunny: :icon_sunny:

But now we find out exactly what those who drill wells, produce wells, fix wells, cement wells, plug and abandon wells, have known for far longer than Greenpeace or the Sierra club has been around bitching about what they have never understood. Vertical permeability relative to horizontal permeability within any given geologic formation is a bitch ( a techno term in industry usually meaning, "order of magnitude or greater"), and itself can preclude the effects hysterically used to pitch the newest fund raising drive.

At the end of the day, the K.I.S.S. principle runs the table. As usual.

Do the well right. Stop howling at the moon. Pay attention to the basics, and know better next time than to listen to those who DON'T specialize in doing this for a living.

WASHINGTON (AP) - The drilling procedure called fracking didnít cause much-publicized cases of tainted groundwater in areas of Pennsylvania and Texas, a new study finds. Instead, it blames the contamination on problems in pipes and seals in natural gas wells.

Okay, so in other words...

Fracking doesn't pollute groundwater,
People who use fracking pollute groundwater!

Got it!  :icon_mrgreen:

Fixed that for you.  ::)

The folks who "specialize" in doing this for a living are responsible for:

The Macondo Well Blowout in the GOM



The Exxon-Valdez



Nigerian Oil Wells



Canada Tar Sands Pollution



Buying the spin that Energy Shills sell you is like putting a Fox in charge of the Hen House.


The LAST people you want to "Trust" here are "Experts" who make a living destroying the Environment. The Conflict of Interest is OBVIOUS.

Get with the program, JD: the only thing that can stop a bad man with a fracking rig is a good man with a fracking rig.
