It is my understanding the leak occurred between the bottom frac valve and the tubing head assembly. First reports indicated the ring gasket failed in my 30 years of oil and gas that would be the first time I ever heard that one.

If the leak was coming from there it would have been because the hook up of the frac stack and tubing head was not made up to be tight. Then as the frac ensued with vibrations the connection gave away.
