fracking in Thealka?

Look, for all of you that really think you know all about how bad drilling and natural gas are !! First of all, ALL water wells have gas in them to begin with. Its called surface gas and its from coal seams and seams of perminable sands. I have worked in the oil and gas industry for 15 years and along the way I have came across a lot of people that didnt understand what actually goes on with drilling and fracing. The average water well in johnson county should be no deeper than 500 feet because the fresh water table is between 350 and 450 feet. Every gas company has to permit, set and cement casing 50 feet below the deepest fresh water. So as far as the trouble you think you are in, you are NOT. The years that I worked in eastern KY, Southern West Virginia and Virgina I was able to be home every night. But since there is no work around here now, I have to go to PA 21 days every month because of all these people that think they are in trouble. I promise, I myself have drilled wells in Thealka and you all have nothing to worry about, I promise. So you all can rest easy knowing that your water has had gas in it for a million years. It was not a frac job and somebody that had no idea has given you some really bad information. If I had the time I would post my phone number and teach a class on saturdays but I have more to do than educate on topix everyday.

I'm sure you know what you're talking about, it's not the natural gas that I'm worried about, it's all the chemicals that are injected into the ground and that are not all captured, so it's released into the environment.

AH YES better living thru chemistry, bet thats why you buy little plastic bottles of drinking water.

You have peaked my curiosity, which "modern purification facility" provides potable water for your home?

I bet if we compare water analysis reports of my well and your "modern purification facility" my well will be closer to pure H2O than your potable water.

You dumbazz's, state laws are for your protection, any drilling done has to have all water zones protected. They do this by setting surface casing that means drilling below water zones and cementing the casing to surface protecting your water. Fracturing is done at least 4,500 to 5,000ft. No way does any chemicals or frac fluids come in contact with fresh water.

Oh yes, I am so jealous that my white clothes are not rust colored, and my drinking water does not smell like rotten eggs. I really hate the fact that I only have to drive one mile to get to a grocery store.

And we're ALL sure NO laws are being broken, right? And quit calling people names, it just shows you lack respect for you and anyone. How are you so sure that chemicals aren't escaping into the environment, which means air as well as water.

You all are a bunch of back woods dumb asses. First of all it is fracturing , there is no "k" in it. They drill deep into the earth and it has no effect on your water, Do some research, and I assure you if your receiving royalties from drilling on your property, I bet none of you will bitch!

They don't drill horizontal wells in this region, only vertical...which means the harsh chemicals are not used...just nitrogen which is in the air we breathe. Research it. And I know for a fact what chemicals were used on the wells in Thealka because I did the the damn service tickets. I'd be worried more about the chemicals my neighbors used if I were you people.

I guess that's why you're awake playing on your computer at 2:45 in the am since you've got such an important job to go to in the morning ;) I'm sitting on location as we speak making that "blue collar money" to pay for your food stamps and Medicaid card. By the way, you're very welcome. Glad to be of service to you.
