We've been provided a report from the Pipeline Saftey Trust that was done for the Gas Research Institute (the gas industry) in October 2000 by C-FER Technologies which has some revealing information about the "blast radius" of a pipeline explosion. The blast radius is the distance that the fire from the explosion consumes, measured in feet from the epicenter to the outer edge of the burned area. We're interested in understanding how the blast from a pipeline explosion will affect Jersey City … [Read more...] about The Blast Radius: What Does it Mean For Your Neighborhood?

To put this in perspective, the LPG delivery truck that leveled this hospital carried about 1,500 gallons when full. Not 500,000, not five million. Fifteen hundred. That's all it took. Not a rail car, not a tanker truck, not a partially collapsed salt cavern. A local delivery truck.

Friends, there are 3 fracked-gas infrastructure projects in NY which are at a critical stage. We really need a lot of eyes looking at 1) Constitution Pipeline, 2) CPV Valley, and 3) Spectra-Algonquin AIM. Let's look at AIM for a minute, a massive 42" high pressure gas pipeline through a densely populated residential neighborhood, and within 105'ft of critical structures at Indian Point, the "most dangerous nuclear power plant in the world". WHAT COULD GO WRONG with this plan?!! … [Read more...] about The Most Critical Safety Issue Facing NY today
In more ways than one. After starting a shale gas fire that killed one worker, injured another and was too fracking hot to put out, Chevron's "community outreach" staff left pizza coupons at about 100 houses around the blast site - as they went through the town to inform people that the fatal well fire had been finally put out after 6 days - but that it might re-ignite. Seems like a real neighborly gesture, until you realize that the frackers probably paid for the pizzas by docking people's … [Read more...] about The Chevron Promise: If our fracking well explodes, the pizza is on us !
New York has no regulations on how seismic tests - using thumper trucks or explosive - can be conducted, or for that matter where they can be conducted, or when they can be conducted, etc. - in the language of some of the seismic crews, New York's regs. are "Nada" http://www.nofrackingway.us/2013/06/07/no-seismic-blast-test-regs-in-new-york-state/ Which means that a seismic crew can shoot explosive charges off just about anywhere they can get permission - or, in some cases not get … [Read more...] about Seismic Crews: Trespass & Blast
The authors conclude, " Unfortunately, there is no defined setback distance that assures safety" - and a few hundred feet between a home & well pad is further proof of the depraved indifference and recklessness that the Oil & Gas Industry, captured regulators and elected 'industry whores' demonstrate towards the American People. Adequacy of Current State Setbacks for Directional High-Volume Hydraulic Fracturing in the Marcellus, Barnett, and Niobrara Shale Plays Marsha … [Read more...] about Setbacks From Wellpads Woefully Inadequate To Protect Nearby Residents
Finally, some news coverage on the DEC's proposal to permit LNG facilities next to your local church, synagogue or day care center. Because there is nothing in the DEC's proposed regs. to not permit an LNG storage or refueling facility next to anything. No setbacks, no nothing. And then watch as the local fire department tries to put it out when it goes boom in the night. http://www.nofrackingway.us/2013/09/24/cuomo-attempts-an-end-run-on-lng/ Adding liquefied natural gas stations in NY … [Read more...] about LNG: It’s A Fracking Blast !
Anyone who says that a 500 ft. or 1,000 ft. setback between an oil or gas well and YOUR home is either delusional or a scam artist...

KABOOM ! SOUNDS LIKE THE FRACKERS ARE HERE ! The Richard sent me this story about some errant shot hole seismic tests in Pennsylvania, and the Pa. Department of Environmental Prevarication's response. And I had to chuckle. Because New York with "the best fracking regulations on the planet" - has no regulations whatsoever for such shot blasts. As in none. Or in Spanish, the first language of some of the harder working seismic … [Read more...] about NO SEISMIC BLAST REGS IN NEW YORK STATE
