OMG is that duck tape?

Duct Tape, for when you really need a new pipe but can't afford one.
I think MythBusters built an entire gasline using the stuff didn't they?

Wow, the same stuff that XOM tried, but failed, to fix a produced water line leak at Rancho Los Malulos with!
Now that I think about it, I hope they have all the permits to use that water. It's quite possible for someone run endanger the water supply of a rural water system by using it up without permission. And, that could be real bad in a fire!
I know. Crazy, right? It's not like they aren't making billions in profit.
the cinder block ducked taped to the hose is my personal favorite. this operation should be entered in that epic fail website.
Did Wms learn this technique from XOM or is this in the industry operations manual?
No thrill for the drill says
Flower Mound better put Duct tape in their budget just in case they need to do any emergency repairs!

Best Industry Practice.

Consider the source in the pic. There’s a fire hydrant on the left, with a meter affixed. This looks like a temporary setup for some town to sell potable water probably for drilling. A natural gas pipeline would obviously involve more care and sophistication.
Casual Observer a natural gas pipeline would not involve more care and sophistication it would just be underground.
