Soon to be known as Texaco at the rate we're going.
LOL Not if any of the other Texas Monkeys have anything to say about it. Welcome aboard, from rural Coastal Texas!
Ya know I might just be moving down to Midland .... if this new job comes through... welcome... With all these Texas boys I'm going to have to use a lot more howdy's, I recon, and yeehaas in my threads...
Dave don't pump them anymore than ya have to,It goes right to their heads .LOL
Welcome and have a great time !!
Yeeeehaw GrandpaDave. Yeee-frickin-haw. Yippe ki-ya, and all that jazz. Oh, and if you move to Midland/Odessa, DO NOT DRINK THE TAP WATER, EVER. Also do not open your eyes under the water in the shower, EVER. Major bad mojo. In some places in Midland, they have been known to be able to ignite their tap water as it flows out of the tap and watch it burn. ..
Oh and Cephus, how do you think we get 10 gallon hats to fit?
That's what I'd be going down for Falcon... if the project is approved there is this massage supper fund cleanup project in the planing stages... problem is... no one knows how to stop the gas mitigation from all the fracing
Yeah, they have seriously boogered up the ground out that way. Midland may become uninhabitable one day soon, excepting of course, piping in the water and that is really no solution in the long run. Pretty soon, you'll get surface fissures leaking that nastiness into the atmosphere...
We have a lot of Tx guys here now doing that fracing thing in WV ,They don't seem to be able to drive on our roads because we're always pulling those trucks back on the road and the drive goes to the horsepistol if he's lucky.
A lot of people are not happy with the way they are doing things .

I hear you have these things called curves in your roads out there. That's probably what's causing the problem. It confuses our vehicles.
Heh. With the gas drilling around here, it's fun watching the southwest licensed tank truck drivers rock up on the outside of the turn tires. Every now and then, there are oopses.
Fracking doesn't seem to be a problem up here, in spite of the noise from down in Dimock. I hear it has been so in Midland, TX, but haven't seen any credible reports.
The MOST Important thing about "Fracking Technology" is it needs to be done many THOUSANDS of feet, BELOW the local Water Table. That was the issue in Midland, Tx, where they were doing it fairly shallow in ground with lots of fissures. This is where the technology was used early on, and these are the issues, that were found to be BIG Issues with using the technology. If your Fracking down at 10K ft, then it just isn't and issue. Especially if you have good solid sealed soil layers in between. this is what is now causing the Oil Boom in North Dakota and Montana. Deep Well Fracking, for NG, and Oil. Geology of the ground, is very important. ..... YMMV.....
Welcome ! when ya gunna secede ? all it will take is Texas to get the ball rolling lol.
Welcome from San Antonio, TX.
Not Born a Texan, but I Choose to Be One!
What is that they say? I may not have been born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could.
Welcome from Central TX!
Oh there have been Lot's of credible reports.... they know fracing has caused serious problems across the country... problem is we need the oil and gas otherwise this country would grind to a standstill...
Call me a conspiracy buff... but I do find it odd how these stories and reports of serious problems never get the attention they should from the press... those stories killed just as quickly as they emerge... only once in a while to we get any sense of how bad it's getting

No conspiracy, just fact and geology. As Bruce pointed out, the shallow depth of the fracking in west Texas is the issue, not the process itself. They literally learned this the hard way.
I would help Texas fight for its independence .
