in Eagle Ford Shale, Flaring

This is another Marathon Oil Company flare that is not working properly. I’m starting to wonder if the operators in the Eagle Ford Shale have the ability to properly operate a flare.


Here is a video I took of a Marathon flare in the EFS.

You can see that the flare is not functioning properly. We know from living in the gas patch that flares producing lots of black smoke can be from H2S. Cut down on your exposure and you might be better able to connect dots.
