Today, members of ShaleTest took some videos with a FLIR GasFindIR camera.
This video was shot with a FLIR Gasfinder Camera, that is designed to detect VOCs, So what you are seeing is not steam, but is chemicals. This is a produced water tank that is located at a Chesapeake Energy natural gas compressor station along the Trinity River near downtown Fort Worth, TX. The odor from these emissions were horrible, and unfortunately is located next to a city park and playground, as well as a large community.
This facility is right next to a park. We cannot trust this industry. We can never turn our backs on them or relax for even a moment. We must insist on state of the art monitoring equipment and setbacks that are protective of public health.
We need to move away from fossil fuel use ASAP and not allow fracking in any new areas. Spread the word about clean energy.
