Frack Nation is on AXS channel tonight? Thoughts? Opinions? Looks to be an industry friendly or sponsored film..... What say you!!!!
I have said from the first day I posted about this that there may be an isolated case or two where while drilling the upper 300' of a well that a water well might be affected by the drilling of a gas well. These are generally within 1000' or less of the actual drilling and the majority of those affected are by turbidity or iron due to cuttings or air getting into the aquifer. Most of these will clear up on their own but the industry is responsible and will repair or replace the well. Always did. In my 25 years of working for DEP, I can count on one hand the number of wells that were permanently damaged or affected and a new well or supply had to be drilled/replaced.OneLongShot said:What about methane mitigation into wells and the aqifer? There are cases (ie: Wyalusing) that have faulty well casing causing the creeping of methane to the surface.....to the point the well can be shut down. Whats the cause? Poor quality cement and not letting it dry?.... Many wells have methane in themm already but some don't but do have it after local drilling. Surface spills, leaking retention ponds ,etc. are other issues that need adressing They don't deal directly with the actual drilling but they are part of the process......

And where do you think anyone could find such a film? If someone was so disinterested and detached to the issue, they would not invest the time and money to produce a film.
Bottom line: everyone has a motive.
