Our comments on the Office of Oil and Gas' draft permit (2013) for the Webb UIC well.
2014 DEP response to comments
Operator's SPCC Plan. The plan shows that secondary containment for the storage tanks is adequate assuming the walls between containment cells are perforated.
An appeal was made to the Environmental Quality Board in 2014 regarding the permitting process and other factors. The Office of Oil and Gas created a large document file with materials related to the well, including 2013 inspection reports and the application materials for the 2013 permit application. The appellant's brief gives an excellent survey with issues with the operator's actions and has an analysis of stream contamination by Dr. Avner Vengosh of Duke University. According to Dr. Vengosh the stream shows contamination from Marcellus produced waters.
The operator closed and reclaimed the pits in mid-2014. This group of soil tests shows that the pits were leaking.
The operator apparently conducted a pipeline integrity test in 2014. It's not at all clear which pipeline was being tested. There is a pipeline between this well's facility and the operator's sister well nearby. This group of documents shows the pipeline integrity test being conducted between the tanks and the pump in 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, and 2010. The documents all have the same wording and were received by the Office at the same date.
The operator apparently did not inject into the well for part of 2014. Injection resumed in December 2014 for 4 days as shown by this WR-40.
