public relations propaganda video gone wrong.
You might remember that I’ve mentioned often how corrosive hydrocarbons and drilling waste are and how they will corrode the pipelines and cause them to leak. Well…
DOT proposes fine for Williams following rural Virginia accident
A gas pipeline ruptured causing 15 injuries, 23 families had to be evacuated and 2 homes were destroyed.
The USDOT is issuing a probable violation and possible civil penalty. They could be fined $952,500. It seems the department’s Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) investigation determined that Williams failed to maintain their pipeline properly.
…possible failures by Williams-Transco to address regulatory requirements for monitoring and preventing external corrosion.
PHMSA imposed some additional stiff restrictions and corrective actions on Williams.
Shiloh Chris requested more information, which is easily obtained using “teh Google,” but I always try to comply with reader wishes, so here:
Uhmm…yes, it was obviously a gas pipeline. If you have gas wells, you will also have gas pipelines. In addition, Williams wants to install pipelines to transport drilling waste.

Hello, where is the link to the story. And I think we are talking about a "Gas Pipeline". Of which Williams owns thousands, and thousands of miles of pipe. Where is the rest of the story?
the rest of the story is that you sold your soul to the devil.
"Drill baby, drill", will be followed by "Burn baby, burn"
You signed the leases, you live with the consequences, just don't drag every one else in Flower Mound down with you. Some of us would like our fire professionals to not have to deal with one more threat to public safety.
Shiloh Chris says
It's not the first time a gas pipe has caught fire, probably won't be the last either. Life is risky, you take a risk every day when you get into your car and take off. Doesn't mean just because there are car wrecks and people are killed that we should stop driving cars. Just try to be careful. And Williams might be the devil to you, but to thousands and thousands of lease holders and share holders they are angels sent by god.
Miss point much, Chris? The point is that Williams was negligent in maintaining their pipelines and people got hurt. It doesn't matter what KIND of pipeline because they all will do damage. But I see that you simply do not care about anything but the money.
What do Shiloh Chris and Pat Robinson have in common? They both can justify anything by bring God (should be capitiized Chris) into the picture. Maybe when God and Williams makes you rich you can move your happy ass to Highland Park and you will not have to deal with the rest of us cancer stricken heathens.
Shiloh Chris says
Miss Sharon, the case is still open, and if it doesn't matter what kind of pipeline is involved then why are you not out crusading against the evil empire "the Town of Flower Mound" for having water pipelines, and sewer lines. Holly crap they are all going to fail and people are going to be flooded, wasting water, untreated sewage running unabated through the streets and neighborhoods. If that's true, I'm gathering up all of my can goods, and heading for my secret underground shelter. Seriously Sharon, you cannot believe that all pipes are going to fail? And by the way there are a lot a things that mean a zillion times more to me than money.
Shiloh Chris your comparing driving a car to living next to a pipeline, gas well, or compressor station is ludacris. How can anyone be careful when your actions are putting them in danger.
We might as well blindfold you put you behind the wheel of your car going 70mph on I-35. You would be exhibiting the same kind of reckless endangerment to the people who live in your world. William-Morris and William energy both of their mottos could be trust us we would not lie to you what do we have to gain by lying.
Huh! How many people do you know, Chris, who were killed by a leaky water line? How many trees and grass and soil spoiled for ever?
Seriously, Chris, I never, ever said that all pipes are going to fail. Bless your heart. Water pipes and gas gathering pipes aren't even made of the same material.
Chris it is holy I don't think Holly would like you taking her name in vain. What is the first thing that happens to people SOME people who take gas well money? They lose the use of two orifices and one major organ, their eyes, their ears, and their brains. Now if we could just get their mouths in on it we might make some progress in Texas. Hope to see you Chris at FM meeting 1/21/10. I am sure you will be the one surrounding by many neighbors who want to thank you for concern for their well being. You sound like a great gal. I really like your comment about $45,000 in 2 months from Williams. To brag like that really shows your heart is in right place.
bwah ha ha ha! chris is not the sharpest knife in the drawer.
i am pretty sure there is a comment from her on another post where she was bragging about how much money she had made. so, yeah, it is all about the money.
Anonymous look under TX Sharon web-site Blue Blazes heading Hey Flower Mound, forget the good neighbor bull and you can read her bragging about how much money she has made. Maybe she needs to hire PR firm like big oil and gas, she can afford it now.
Shiloh Chris says
Hey Sharon, sorry for the mix up. I guess I'm not understanding your sentence from your 6:39 pm post. "It doesn't matter what KIND of pipeline because they all will do damage". Obviously I'm not getting the point of that statement.
Well, bless your heart, Chris. If you are having a conversation about gas drilling and related pipes/pipelines then the pipes mentioned are within that context.
There are all kinds of pipes in the world.
She has golden pipes.
Put that in your pipe and smoke it.
Oh! And, pipe bombs…
See my point about the brain going with SOME people who take gas well money. Did you have a compressor station next to your home as a child Chris? That would explain it! Man this is fun, nice distraction from worrying about what Range is up to at Rayzor Ranch.
speaking of pat robertson, the devil wrote him a letter.
Shiloh Chris says
No I didn't scubawithdogs, but I sure would like to stick a f__king scuba tank up your dumb ass you f__king retard……….
That's uncalled for, Chris. I don't care if you cuss but making fun of mentally challenged people is way beyond rude.
My momma always said when your opponent starts attacking you instead of the issue, you are making progress. Keep up the good work Sharon.
Bring on brother! I look like Sarah so you might want to kiss me first. I would supply the tank but with all your money you could take me on a trip to the ocean, supply the tank, and then do your shoven. Baby. Slow down on the suds though I hate a sloppy drunk.
Sharon, Sharon, Sharon you should hire Chris she makes even us retards look good. I wonder if I have seen her on "are you smarter than" a 2 year old. She?He? is distracting us but that is the object is it not? Come on Chris I am putting in for time off work for our trip! LET ME KNOW! I am sure you will want to go during the digging, drilling, traffic, odor, neighbors objection, noise. Just let me know when your mailbox money is in and I will be ready. Sugar
"Angels sent by G-d", followed up with a "would like to stick a f__king scuba tank up your dumb ass you f__king retard………."
Wow, we are dealing with a professional…and these are the same group of people calling FMCAUD "radical". Hey Shiloh residents, better weed this wacko out, gonna make you look real bad on Thursday. Carry on radicals, the natives are getting restless and a little angry. 😛
The PHMSA Corrective Action Order for that pipeline failure is here:
Note the low CP levels in 2003 & 2006. They can show coating damage, something that needs immediate action by a pipeline.
You know Anonymous once history is recorded it is history. It is really hard to take it back documented statements and threats that are recorded. That is why I find it better to let unstable people ramble because then you will all hear the propoganda and when it is politically correct to change their stance their word will come back to haunt them.
Flower MOund will win because this is not a challenge the rest of us can stand to lose.
So, they should have known from those low levels and just ignored it. Is that right?
I am weary I do not have alot of money to fight but my will is strong. I want a better life for my family and my neighbors. I love Texas and do not want to see it destroyed is like watching a close friend die slowly from a curable cancer. I will fight on and thanks for everyones support.
It seems so.
A failing anode bed can also cause low Cathodic Protection (CP) readings, so it should be a high priority of pipelines to check out the reasons they have low CP readings.
Ignoring this is like ignoring knock sounds on your car/truck motor. It may be a minor problem, but it may be also about to fail catastrophically!
Shiloh Chris: Are you Chris Stockton, by chance?
Chris Tomlinson and she's a man. Need his address?
No addresses! It could be dangerous. =)
Flower Mound has some problems with their elected officials ethics and morals.There has been a public information request submitted to the town of Flower Mound, by a lawyer, requesting information on the sexual harassment case AGAINST Mayor Smith and Council Member Levenick
I heard it has something to do with heineys an not the kind that comes in a bottle.
