Shell Oil buys water

Published by at 8:35 pm under General Information

Shell Oil has made an agreement with City of Walsenburg to purchase water for its upcoming natural gas well drilling activity. Shell has leased mineral rights west of La Veta and intends to drill an exploratory well up to 10,000 feet deep in search of natural gas. Petroglyph Drilling recently announced plans to shut down their more shallow depth methane gas drilling operations entirely.  Shell will be using typical fracturing fluids in their process. Fracking has recently given rise to public health and safety concerns in many areas with potential contamination of water supply being a huge worry of all.  Shell suggested that we could learn more about their current Wyoming fracking at www.fracfocus.org  No doubt we all have a lot of concern and a lot more that we want to learn.
