Rusting Gas Well Sites in Dimock, PA

Published on Dec 11, 2012
Taped 12-11-12. This is the gas pads/sites on Ken Ely's property in Dimock, Pa., Susquehanna County. These sites are producing gas and were installed in 2008 by Cabot Gas Co., and the brine tanks are rusting out and possibly leaking into the ground. They need to be examined by the DEP. The puddles alongside these brine tanks need to be tested. I have permission of the owner to visit these sites. You can hear the sounds of the heaters/production units and see some of the emissions from them and we could smell them. This is all the components you will find on every gas site.

Thank you, Vera Scroggins, for making this video.  You go where many cannot often go because we are too far away.

New York, take note.  This could be us in five years.  Let's not let it happen.

Again, we have half the story!

Question: Are Cabot Oil & Gas personnel permitted on this well-site property? The owner (Ken Ely) is dead. His son is still suing Cabot and I believe Cabot personnel do not enter that property because their workers have been threatened by the Ely's.
All other tanks in Susquehanna County have been/are being replaced with fiberglass tanks to alleviate the rust problem. If a landowner threatens to shoot oil/gas personnel, they don't enter your property unescorted.
