A gas well was drilled on my property about two years ago. I have my house hooked up to it. I lose gas pressure intermitently when the air temp changes dramatically, ie: 10 degrees in short period of time. The low pressure valve shuts off. I can immediately reset it and it will stay on. Any suggestions to what my problem is and how to fix it. email at cheigel@adelphia.net

Margaret did you find someone to work on your well. I need someone to work on ours also. Please provide names and contact info.

Thanks

I have a natural gass well that we use to heat, run clothes dryer, hot water heater etc. My grandfater used to get oil off this well, but it hasn't produced oil in about 100 years. We had to have the caseing redone 25 years ago. The pump that pumps the water off keeps breaking the belts. If you can't pump the water off you won't get any gas. Do you know of any one that works on Natural Gas Wells? I haven't been able to find any one. I live in Franklin, KY. It's on the KY, TN line. Thanks Margaret

SOUNDS LIKE YOUR GAS IS BEING "CRACKED" OR SEPERATED INTO LESSER GASSES, IE BUTANE . WITH OIL BEING A RESIDUE. MY GUESS IS YOU NEED A NEW REG.

Hello,
I converted from propane to natural gas from a neighboring well and I have had a problem with inconsistent gas pressure. I have a drip that is located about 300 feet from the well and a one inch plastic line that runs 800 feet up hill to an exterior low pressure regulator at my cabin. The pressure at the drip is 8 pounds and it seems to have plenty of pressure to the regulator. It is a new regulator that worked fine for few months. I cleaned it and dried it out in side a warm location and is still wont work. Can I test it or rebuild it? It also has an oily residue in the pipe at the regulator, can that be the problem and can it be filtered? It has been very cold but is has colder and it was working. I live in southeastern Ohio, Logan to be precise. If you have any advise It would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

Hey Aaron, my natural gas regulator has frozen. It's fed from a private gas well. I'm trying to thaw it and make sure it doesn't freeze again. Any ideas? Thanks, MJ

A very low rate on methanol injected into the produced gas stream will keep the ice out. on a very low volume situation like you have you could probably just batch in a liter or two every week or so and see if that helps. typically a well producing 2000m3/day of natural gas would use 10-20 liters of methanol to help keep ice/hydrates to a minimum. I doubt your private well is producing any more than a couple of m3/day gas.

Hey Jeff, I would check online for the manufacturer, I would imagine that there is a rebuild kit for your regulator, and I would consider installing a wilkerson inline filter ($50+or-) upstream of your regulator to filter out any particulates that might be building up and plugging your regulator. Check and replace the filter element when needed(about $20). should last a long time in your application. http://www.wilkersoncorp.com

I have a natural gas well on my property and would like to heat my house with it. I currently run my dryer, hot water and stove with it. the problem is that the well carries pleny of pressure but will not support the volume needed for a furnace. Help?

Actually Sheri there are many concerns regarding wells near peoples homes, and yet vitually all of them are managable. First thing I would do is check with whoever the regulatory body for gas producers is in your area(In Alberta it is the EUB) They should have a public database of accidents, spills and leaks for the company who owns the wells(and who operates them). that should help tell you if they are a responsible company, or if they have a safety issue. Next, what type of well is it?, a low pressure, low volume, sweet gaswell is much safer than a high pressure, large producing or sour(H2S) well. H2S is deadly in small concentrations, and would concern me near my house. Sweet natural gas on the other hand would require a mammoth release to pose any "explosion" or health risk at any distance from the leak, as it disperses into the surrounding air quite fast, and you need about a 20% gas to air ratio to get a explosion. And quite honestly most gas wells just don't make that much gas. I would have the well water checked by a independant lab(bad cement jobs on the well casing "could" let gas migrate into the aquifer). and I would insist that if a company is going drill a new well in my area, that they pay to test the water before and after the well has been drilled. A little knowledge will serve you better than a bunch of fear.

Our neighbor had a company dig a gas well this past week on his property. There was a big explosion and the well burned for 24 hours. Now I have been approached by the gas company wanted to lease my land (1 acre - We live in an allotment). They say I can not get any of the gas but if I sign their lease I might be able to share 12% of the profit with my neighbors. All I want is the gas to heat my home. I am not interest in royalties. I know nothing about gas wells but need to learn quick. Could someone point me in the right direction?(live in Northeast Ohio)

A gas company wants to drill for gas on my 25 ac. they offer $12.50 per net mineral ac. for 5 yr. paid up lease. If they drill a well within 5 yrs capable of producing paying quantities, I would be entitled to a 1/8 royalty, and gas to heat my home.Is this a good deal for me or is the destruction of property more than its worth ? I should add that there are many new wells in the surrounding counties. I am located in Miami co. ks. Thanks.

We were just contacted by a gas well driller about drilling on our property. We would love to know more from others who have had this done....does it create an eyesore?
go to a lawyer and get every thing in writing . it may cost you some money but you can more than make that back by having free gas .also make sure you get all road rocked and maintained . I have 3 wells on my property and they took me for a big ride . all I got was the free gas

I live in Pennsylvania and have 20 acres and own the mineral rights. It has a gas well that is blowing gas out and I stuck a pipe down in the casing and ran a line to my house. We also hit natural gas drilling our water well. I am looking for information on how to utilize this gas correctly and safely and also where I can buy parts for doing so. Please e-mail me at resmith@zoominternet.net if you have any info.
