Where’s the fence? I believe you are violating a Fort Worth ordinance and endangering the neighborhood children.
This well near Sam Calloway Road, was granted a special waiver by the city council so they could drill about 200 feet from the homes with small children that are on the other side of those trees. But, I don’t think they waived the fence.

Why should anyone be surprised by this? The corporate culture at this firm is such that lies, intimidation and questionable tactics are the norm. Whatever it takes to drill those wells as cheaply as possible in order to pay off their exorbitant debt. That's the name of the game. They would probably look you straight in the eye and tell you that children playing around this wellhead are simply a cost of all the benefits you are going to receive from the Barnett Shale. Funny though how so few people are receiving benefits.
Why isn't the city out there inspecting this site? Fort Worth is entirely negligent in protecting citizens! They should worry about lawsuits from the danger they create for their citizens.
Toxins injected into the ground water and storm run off are affecting the new library and the homes and children on old denton highway and spring lake park. Gator well 125 drilled by chesapeak energy. Google "KB Home Sucks" to see the subdivision next to the rig. Storm water run off and fracking into the water table.
