Earlier today I posted a series of rather horrifying photos from a well in Bartonville. I labeled it Mystery Well because we were unsure who the operator was. The confusion was due to a Gulftex employee, a Mr. York, who swore that site did not belong to Gulftex. Wow! I thought, “My lying eyes!” I remembered seeing a sign that said “GULFTEX” in a video of the site. So confusing…
See what your eyes tell you about 1:06 into the video
See if you see Gulftex scratched into the red paint on the photo below. See, if you put red paint over the rusted and pitted out metal, that fixes it, right?
Oh, and I guess this box thing-a-ma-jig somehow got mislabeled.
Well, we have no worries now because that well has totally been all cleaned up by power washing the tanks and dumping clean sand on top of the toxins. (Does this remind you of another Barnett Shale operator we all know and love?)
I had to make a new blog category for Gulftex because I’m betting we haven’t heard the last of this operator.
UPDATE: GulfTex head honcho, “Mr. Good Guy,” claims he sold the Green well but the TRC has no record of that and shows GulfTex as the owner. As a conscientious citizen journalist, I have to use the most current state information unless I have some other form of proof that “Mr. Good Guy” no longer operates this well. Angry phone calls to the landowner are considered intimidation not proof of ownership. Now I have to add another category to the post.
Could someone please request a list of the chemicals Bartonville and Argyle tests for in their water? Send it to me, will ya?
