We met at a local coffee shop with two young men employed by The Railroad Commission of Texas to discuss the findings of their four-day long audit of the gas gathering pipelines in our southeast Arlington neighborhood. This investigation was prompted by a citizen complaint. Records in early June 2012 on the Fulson 12" flow lines indicated 'in construction phase' with a 'start date of October 2009'. Meanwhile, the Fulson well has been in production since February 2011. Their office workers must be buried underneath stacks of paperwork!
Southeast Arlington Valve Yard which is too close to homes.
A valve yard is the intersection where gas gathering lines from drill sites converge. Will local residents suffer health issues due to invisible emissions venting out of that stack?
This HOA could have had a community club house or swimming pool.
Now this is a danger zone.
Do you know when your gas gathering pipelines were inspected?
