The saga of Shelly DePue’s Famous Bubbling Annulus, ie. Truthlyand, continues to amuse audiences across the country. After a memorable, if limited, engagement in Syracuse and Buffalo, Ms. DePue continues to thrill audiences with her famous bubbling annulus. Be sure to check out Truthland, The Truth Behind Shelly’s Bubbling Annulus when she brings her brand of truthiness to your town. If she is on the panel of camp followers that tours with the mockumentary, ask her if her annulus is still bubbling . . .
And what went down her bubbling annulus ? A whole lot of nasty chemicals – thousands of gallons of which were undisclosed, per Scott Cannon’s sleuthing:
The truthiness of an industry sponsored propaganda video keeps unraveling every day. Shelly DePue, the femme fatal of “Truthland”, the epic tale of fact omission and spin, states that the fracking chemicals Dr. Terry Engelder refers to in the video as dish detergent are all conveniently listed on line on the Frac Focus website. The trouble with the truth is that one search on Frac Focus will show that 0.02577% concentration of the frac fluid in her own wells are a “Proprietary Trade Ingredient” which means they won’t and don’t have to tell you what it is.
0.02577% concentration doesn’t seem too much, but if you do the math, it looks like this:
Each well on the DePue pad uses 5 to 5.5 million gallons of Frac Fluid per well.
Using the infamous, gas leaking 8H well (see chart, last line), 0.02577% of 5,040,726 million gallons is 1,299 gallons of IDKW (I Don’t Know What).
There are 10 wells on the DePue property, only 4 wells are listed on Frac Focus.
1,387 Gallons of IDKW in DePue 2H
1,390 Gallons of IDKW in DePue 4h
1,299 Gallons of IDKW in DePue 8H
1,491 Gallons of IDKW in DePue 10H
Total IDKW (I Don’t Know What) = 5,567 gallons
And why do you suppose Shelly’s annulus was bubbling ? Because shale gas wells leak – quite often.
Even in fracking mockumentaries.
Two thumbs up.
Spoiler Alert :
Ms. Depue’s famous bubbling annulus does not actually make an appearance in the fracking mockumentary. It is, in fact conspicuously absent. The eponymous Ms. DePue acts her way through this stinking farce without once mentioning her own bubbling annulus, much less showing it on camera. She keeps it behind her, as it were. Which speaks volumes for her ability as a truthy actress. And her future as a shale shill.

Showing of ‘Truthland’ met with skepticism tonight in Youngstown
A mostly anti-fracking audience attended the first showing of “Truthland” in Youngstown on Tuesday at the Youngstown Historical Center of Industry and Labor.
They laughed openly during the documentary, and waved red flags when they believed panel members after the movie were lying. Later, they complained about the controlled nature of the event.
“Truthland” is a film made by Shelly DePue, a Pennsylvania farmer whose land was leased and fracked. It attempts to rebuke the ideas presented in the film “Gasland,” which explores whether fracking is safe.
DePue was part of Tuesday’s panel and answered a question about a well on her property that caused the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection to investigate.
“I object to the idea that most of the chemicals used in fracking are something that most of us have in our homes, said Judy Vershum, one of those in the audience against fracking. It was just an example of the untruths that are shown in this film, she said.
