I received this email and photo from someone in the Bakken Shale.
This photo was taken at the Dore MT rail car oil loading facility.
The flare burning is coming from the gas produced from the oil in the railroad cars ready to transport by rail. The flare burns 24 hrs a day, this much gas is coming off loaded rail cars with Bakken oil !!!!! and folks wonder why my cattle are dying and we are sick, we live next to the oil well sites, you can only imagine how much gas is coming off of them. The oil in these cars has been transported to the loading station by truck, as these trucks drive down our roads the tanks have relief valves that release the gas into the air while the oil is transported to the rail facility.
Could this also be happening in the Eagle Ford Shale? I bet no one has considered this source of emissions.
