Using the same Picarro technology we used to detect massive methane leaks in the Barnett Shale, researchers at Boston University and Duke University found 3,356 separate natural gas leaks.
Boston said riddled with natural gas leaks
While our study was not intended to assess explosion risks, we came across six locations in Boston where gas concentrations exceeded the threshold above which explosions can occur,” BU earth and environment Professor Nathan Phillips said.
Today 18 people including nine firefighterts were hurt when a qas pipeline exploded.

This 3D map is very impressive. I wonder what the map would look like if it was the results of leaks in Booger County??
This is a great article!
Adding to my post on it at the sinkhole bugle.
But besides MA being full of lousy gas connections . . . there is a rash of ‘gas’ explosions in the eastern states (last 48 hours) that could be from seismic activity … or worse. Methane migration caused by the big BP oil spill. Very scarey all around!
