Man can ignite his faucet water, gas drilling


This is in the same town I live in where drilling for Marcellus Shale is quite the hot topic. I quite sure this video may put a wrinkle in things, if they are at fault...

this has happened in ohara twp locally, and my moms 2nd husband had natural gas normally in their well water, although not that much.
I beleve there are ways to remove and vent the gas, some in ohara were using it.
a water well repair crew set off a explosion one day.
sometimes natural gas is close to the surface normally

Install separator and manifold pump + regulator then tap into natural gas line after shutting off the gas company's valve. Filter water from seperator and re-route to well pump and storage tank.

If I was going to light my tap water on fire and broadcast it for all the world to see, I would have done my dishes first or at least taken them out of the sink.
This film crew obviously has no clue about production values.

Well they have the fancy single appliance that both washes and dries clothes. Why not just wash and rinse dishes in the sink, drain then light to dry?

gas drilling:

I thought it added credibility in that all the visual elements were consistent with each other.

Huh? If you mean that both sinks had dirty dishes in them, then I guess you're right.

I would have to figure out a way to store and use the natural gas. I wonder how much of the gas bubbles up past the pump? I'd like to see the well cap off and remotely light it there.

I remember the odd even license plate rationing. What a pain. I've heard it was artificial shortage. There was, and is, plenty of oil.

Yes, the rag-heads were pitching a tantrum, they took their oil and went home. This went on during 73-74 if I remember right and after almost four decades we don't have oil independence? There are a number of reasons why (I can't name them all) but some of them have to do with interference by tree huggers and a lot of onerous regulations by government plus prohibitions against drilling for oil in a lot of places. We have the oil in our own territory but can't get to it. Asinine government policies and actions by complete morons continue to this day. Your chosen deity only knows why.

During the odd even days I was driving a huge plymouth Fury III, I think it was a 1969, and 8 mpg. Anyway, I'd pull up to the pump with the front end facing the store window. I'd go inside and tell them I wanted 5 or 10 gallons and that it was for the lawn mower and I had gas cans in the trunk. OK, no problem! I'd pay then go out, open the trunk,....... then fold down the spring loaded license plate and there was the fuel fill cap. I'd pump the gas into the car, (since I had no gas cans) close the trunk and leave.

I don't recall any self serve pumps during the odd-even, $5 max days.
At least not in the parts of NYC where I grew up.

That's spooky. And not that far from here. Hour and a half drive.
