I did an open records request and obtained some TCEQ videos taken with the GasFindIR camera in the Eagle Ford Shale . Also linked below are the TCEQ investigation reports.
FLIR GF-Series of revolutionary infrared cameras find greenhouse gas emissions or volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and are unbeatable for detecting even the smallest gas leaks.
These videos show MASSIVE amounts of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) being released into the air from shale oil and gas facilities and the official reports linked below confirm that. VOCs can have serious impacts to human and animal health. In addition to these fugitive emissions, industry is allow “accidental” and “scheduled” releases of these VOCs into our air.
These videos were taken in DeWitt County and were the only ones available from a flyover late last year. Others will be available when the investigations are complete.
The third video is the Lambert Well operated by Forest Oil Corporation.
The fourth video shows emissions from the Black Hawk Central Facility operated by Hawk Field Services.
This is wasted product that royalty owners won’t get paid for.
These are toxins leaking into our air.
This is methane the most powerful GHG.
