Normally, I love irony but this is irony burns the ta-tas.
Pink rig drilling to raise money for breast cancer
Roughnecks go pink for breast cancer
It’s big, pink, costs more than $1 million and is raising money for breast cancer research every day. This pink machine is doing two very important jobs at once
Job One: Make billions in profit for CEO.
Job Two: Give cash to breast cancer research so no one notices breast cancer has increased in the Gas Patch.
UPDATE: It gets even better…
Williams fined $423K for contamination of spring near Parachute
Amount reduced due to ‘prompt, effective and prudent response’
The COGCC’s investigation concluded that Williams’ gas drilling activities, and particularly a leaking liner used in a pit to contain water laced with hydrocarbons and chemicals, contaminated the spring in question. The investigation revealed the presence of benzene, a carcinogenic chemical known to be used in some of the procedures involved in gas exploration.
Does this come with an asbestos liner or benzene barrier?
