"Ten people have been indicted by a Montague County grand jury for stealing more than $1 million worth of oil from Wise, Montague and Denton counties, according to a report in today's Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Oilfield tank trucks were used to steal oil during the night, according to investigators. Some of those indicted worked for companies that haul waste water, but the companies themselves are not suspected of wrongdoing, the report stated. The stolen oil was then being sold to businesses in Montague County who apparently were not aware the oil was stolen. Investigators said more indictments could follow." Anybody know any more details? I'd think the "businesses in Montague County who apparently were not aware the oil was stolen" could tell a waste water truck from an oil tanker, don't y'all?

Okay, but a wastewater truck does not pick up oil. Yea it may be mixed up with the flowback sometimes but they arent SUPPOSED to be getting oil. They are just supposed to be getting the water out that seperates from the oil sure sometimes if they dont do their cacualtions right they will get some oil. None the less what they were doing is illegal!

Exactly, waste water companies are permitted to haul and sell a specific amount per capita. Disposal are allowed to buy and sell oil that is seperated at the facility. Im not saying that what they were doing was legal because they were stealing but as far as the transport method was not the way they were caught. The disposals keep excellent records. Thats how they were caught stealing. And greed. Should have quit while they were ahead.

A water disposal is a license to steal.

How do legitimate businesses not know oil was stolen paying less than half price for oil?

Oil companies only know what wells make by what is reported by the pumper of each individual well. It would be easy to accumulate several bbls of oil over time. If u have a crooked pumper then stealing oil would be no problem if u can just find a water company to help u out. It would take a very " ballsy" individual to even try it. I wouldn't dream of it.

So really these legitimate businesses from both ends must have known something was not right? Sounds like inside job with help (crash dummies) but only crash dummies getting caught.

No they can't, they can pull it and hold it until an oil truck can pull it of them if the pumper wants them to but any crude oil taken to a disposal is money lost for the producing company. Its like you're mining for gold and you need someone to get the rocks out of it and when they do they take some gold with them. If they were allowed to haul oil in their tanks they would have to have all the MSDs required to do so. And most water haulers don't know what that even means. Lots of processes to go through for them to haul it. Nice try being cute.

wait for what? For you to do a lil research to get your facts straight? I'm willing to bet that's gonna take a while. Funny how you only pointed out barker when there were several others arrested, makes one think you had something to do with it too with your all your inside information. Bright must be your favorite color. I will wait to post my opinion on that until I read about another arrest in the oil theft. Your username is right on, a Bowie resident?!

Ummm.....research and facts like this, only2?

"Robert Cody Barker, 26, Bowie, charged with counts of theft over $1,500 under $20,000, aggregated into one case for over $20,000 under $100,000. Gus Richard Allen, 38, Bowie, is a co-defendant facing the same charges. The men are accused of stealing from McCommons Oil on Oct. 2, 2007. Bond was $10,000 on each man."

Every tanker has low percentages of oil and gas in there after they pull a load of water. So by saying that they are allowed because the disposals sell the oil after they accumalate enough to sell. Nice try at insulting me.
