The applications are as follows:
Titan has filed for 1 well at the Hilliard Site
Williams has filed applications for 4 wells for Pad B and 2 wells for Pad C on the Bob Smith property. In addition to the Pad B and C wells they applied for amendment on this lease for 7 additional wells for Pad A on the Bob Smith property.
Williams has submitted an application in for a compression station on the Sam Wilson property. This may be near the proposed Waste Water Collection Facility "Tank Farm" where many tank batteries will be on-site and pipelines incoming and outgoing would be located.
Only the amended application for the additional 7 wells on Bob Smith Pad A have been approved because they did not need any setbacks. There are already 3 wells on this pad site. The others have just been received and not completely reviewed by the town officials, when they are finished reviewing them, they will be added to the next Gas Well Status Report. For more information, contact Brandon Bammel at 972-874-6354.
Many thanks to Brandon for the information today.
The compression station and the proposed Waste Water Collection Facility "tank farm" would be less than a mile from Liberty Elementary and a proposed LISD Middle School. Also 1 to 2 miles
Monday night at the Flower Mound Town Council Meeting, two fathers spoke with us about their children who are battling leukemia. One of these families live in the Wellington area and said he knew of 3 other families in the Wellington area with children battling this disease. The other family lives in Southern Flower Mound about 4 miles from the far northern property of DFW. Let's make it very clear no one is saying this is directly from drilling activity and there is currently no evidence of this yet. But, it makes you wonder why 5 children from the same 5 mile radius area have been diagnosed with Leukemia in the last 2 to 4 years?
The Hilliard well will be a little over 1200' from Shadow Ridge Middle School.
As you can see by the map the other wells are within 1 to 5 miles of many homes, schools, and parks.
What will Flower Mound's air quality and water quality be like when all this activity is going on? Since independent (not those only conducted by the gas drilling company) air or water quality tests are not being done on a regular basis, we may never know.
Until we are sure of the effects from the Barnett Shale, we need a moratorium on all gas drilling in North Texas!!!!
That saying "What you don't know may kill you" comes to mind.
