Nasty Salt Water Injection Wells- Leaking Salt Water Transmission Pipe Near Brock Kills Nursery Plants

4 November 2008 at 12:02:45 PM

From the Weatherford Democrat

A leak in a line owned by Barnett Gathering, a subsidiary of XTO Energy, and running through property owned by Cole’s Plants, Inc. and Harry’s Greenhouse, Inc., near Brock, has already killed surface plants, according to the lawyer for the business.

The attorney, Jim Eggleston, said the leak appears to have been caused by corrosion from the brine flowing through the metal underground pipes from gas wells to disposal wells. The salt water may also contain chemicals, metals and possibly radioactive materials, according to Eggleston.

“The salt water, the brine, is a by-product of the gas production process,” Eggleston said. “We don’t know how long the pipeline has been leaking and thus, the extent of the contamination.”

The article mentions this is the SECOND time recently that there's been an injection well issue.

A disposal well near Aledo was capped after failing an inspection by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality about two weeks ago.

“This is a major issue, not just for the Coles, but for all of us living in a rapidly-developing oil and gas area,” Eggleston said. “It is a cost for energy, but not one that should be borne by innocent landowners.”

We stop it by speaking out to our elected representatives that THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE TO THE CITIZENS OF THIS COMMUNITY and we stop leasing our land for the $$$$.
