Going, Going, Gone

Let's Paint the Town Red ~ no need to attend the Arlington, TX City Council Meeting on Tuesday, October 16th.   Chesapeake's request to drill an additional gas well at the Rocking Horse Site located at 4945 South Collins Street is on hold ~ at least until December.  Stay tuned...

It was so gracious of Chesapeake to settle with Mr. Thursby over their year-and-a-half-long dispute regarding the length of time that temporary frac pond would be allowed to remain.   Although the contractual agreement specified continuous drilling, Chesapeake only drilled one out of approximately 11 wells in three years.  That land where the pond currently sits is being released back  to its rightful owner.  


Chesapeake is draining the moat-like frac pond which is soon to be filled with earth.   Clients are interested in developing that land, and the process could begin in as little as 60 days.  The property is proposed to house medical offices. 

Thank you, Lovell, Lovell, Newsom & Isern, L.L.P. for successfully helping your client and our community.


  1. This is all very strange starting with the frack moat.

  2. I don't know...would this be one of the first times a Frac Pond has been drained and filled in? It must take a lawsuit since they only moved our Monster 150 feet ~ as a neighborly gesture.

  3. It will be interesting to see if someone is willing to take the leap and develop this property considering its close proximity to a drill site slated to have 11 wells. Gas drilling and exploration is no benign matter - it is dangerous, heavy, industrial activity. The City would like us to think this is all normal, but it is best to keep as far away from it all as is humanly possible.
