How Many Waste Injection Wells in Somervell County Now? (October 2008)

21 October 2008 at 9:38:44 PM

Have mentioned before how much I appreciate that the County Judge and Commisioners have a standing protest to try to prevent addtional commercial waste injection wells from coming into the county. I'ts been awhile since I wrote about injection wells in our county (last in 2007-this one is Gunn Mountain SWD near Chalk Mountain), so thought I'd go up to the Texas Railroad Commission site (RRC) and see what the latest is. Looks like there are 2 more SWD's in 2008; these last two are from Quicksilver and they're in Nemo.

The first is 2.5 miles NW of Nemo (and Hwy 67) on CR 308  -on the J.M Nickell survey. Actually the second may be the same one as the first, I"m not sure why there are two listed under the same name, Billie Holiday SWD

Incidentally, I heard that there's a new applicaiton for yet ANOTHER SWD disposal well for the O&G CRAP. If it isn't referring to the Billie Holiday SWD, which would put the number of SWD's in Somervell up to 6, then where is it? I don't see another permit on the RRC site.  (Searching via the UIC code brings up only 5, is it possible that although the Quicksilver Injection well mentioned above says it's approved, it actually is not?)  What's also kind of funny is that if you search by Wellbore results on injection wells, there are only FOUR listed. ??

Looks like a call to the RRC is warranted to find out why the discrepancies in the views?

On the surface of it, the RRC records appear extensive and complete--however, when you get into details, there are many 'holes' , strange docs & missing docs.  If you catch the RRC with having something wrong, they will just call up the operator and "surprise" a corrected doc shows up in the file!  Then, everbody is clean!
