I knew the noise was comming

I have known for over a year that a gas well was going in 100 yards from my property line.
Well it's here. They started drilling 2 weeks ago and the constant noise is devistating. The access road is only 30 yards from my camp. Constant traffic, water trucks, sand trucks, flat beds of all sorts.
My peacefull piece of heaven is gone , at least for a few years. My son and his girl only stayed for 1 night over the holiday weekend. Hard to sleep with all the noise.
I know it's been great for the local aconomey and has created jobs for a lot of people, this is the great part, unfortunitly for me I get nothing out of it.
JUST VENTING. Thanks for listening

Re: I knew the noise was comming

Once they are done and things settle down it won't be so bad
The one by us a truck comes by every so often and checks on it but that's about all.

Re: I knew the noise was comming

It goes fast. I have been involved in 3 different wells, and when the first started I was the same way {devastated] but now it is an awesome property for deer and turkey. Last year we took 3 deer off it, and could have taken more. The gas guys were more efficient then I gave credit for. I had a well last archery 200 yds behind my camp the first week of the season. We went back to camp a couple weeks later for a full week of archery hunting, and the well was done and all was quiet. Hang in there it gets better.

Camp life,it don't get much better!

Like everyone else has said once they are done it quiets down and it isn't too bad. But for awhile it can be very noisy and hectic.

Re: I knew the noise was comming

They drilled a well about 500 yards down the road from my camp several years ago. Pad prep was underway by opening day of deer season, but no one worked there that Monday.

Rest of the two weeks it was dozers from sunup 'til sundown, but no one was bothered much by it. Lots of noise during the actual drilling operation.

Most of the real noise came when they moved in to frack it in the spring. They moved the fracking tanks and fluid for days on end, from another well about a mile away. Trucks up and down past my camp well into the night while I was there But they also brined the gravel road, so it was the best year for no dust in anyone's memory.

Pump trucks howling 24/7 when they began the fracking process itself. Since then, nada in the way of noise or commotion. The fracking tank pad had been there ever since, because they'd thought about eventually drilling another well at the same location.

Went up to camp last Thursday and the additional pad is now gone, seeded back to a hay field again. Cousin said it took them less than a week to remove the pad and restore the field.

They pushed all the crushed limestone to one end of the pad into a huge pile and the twp. boys have hauled it all over the place. Put some on gravel roads to stabilize wet areas, some driveway entrances and all the driveways over the hill at the local cemetery.

Free of charge, wish I'd been there to get some for my driveway, but missed that boat.

Re: I knew the noise was comming

Thanks guys for the pick me up.
I do own the mineral rights, but the vertical and horizontal drilling goes the other direction, away from my land.
